This may sound like an overly simplistic answer, and one that I scoffed at myself many a time....
However, when I started group therapy, a lot of the members talked about "self-soothing" with things like concentrated deep-breathing, meditation, and visualization.
I have started some of these, and it has GREATLY helped when I either get the feeling to SI or start having symptoms of my "other" physical symptom, non-epileptic seizures.
Hope this helps the group. Everyone have a peaceful night!
