A collection of empty Jolly Rancher wrappers. Sometimes these empty wrappers will accumulate near me as I try to cope, until I can go throw them away. Over the past few months I’ve been slowly eating hard candy when my anxiety is super intense or sometimes during emotional or somatic flashbacks. It helps to notice the flavor to try to ground myself and cope. I know it’s not the healthiest option to be using candy and it’s also healthier than some things I’ve done to cope.
