Up Your Resources To Weather the Storm

At the time of this writing, there's massive flooding and people evacuation in the city where I'm in. Lots have been feeling overwhelmed by the storm. There's fear because resources are being overloaded. I'm reminded of a formula prescribed by Dr. Cloud and Dr. Townsend in the midst of bad things happening, "Just a little more until it is enough." Yes, up your resources, up your supplies, to deal with your crisis. In the context of personal recovery and therapy, this means finding regular support and structure to process things (e.g. therapist, support group, rest, exercise, diet, go to classes etc.). Not haphazardly or sporadically, but regularly and sustained until you are getting enough for recovery. Don't miss it!
