A gentle, important reminder from the Question Line Duo:

Take Your ETS

March 7, 2018
If you're in the path of the latest nor'easter, it's time to take your ETS.

February 17, 2018
It's been three days since news first broke of the horrible mass shooting of children and teachers at a school in Florida. Another once unfathomable tragedy has shocked and saddened us all.

Anytime you witness, hear or read about an event on this scale:

If you have ETS for Humans, take 3 to 5 doses every day for 5 days

so you can keep breathing, and thinking, and
moving forward as you process what's happening.

We have learned over many years that even people who know about and use ETS regularly tend to forget to take it during a crisis, exactly the time you need it most.

It's difficult for us to choose when to remind you to take ETS. (Should we say it for this event, when we didn't mention the one two weeks ago, just as horrific?) And we know if we over-remind, it becomes easy to tune out the message. Unfortunately, so many tragic events are happening in the world, it would be irresponsible of us not to remind you to take your ETS when needed.

So, we have thought of a way to simply say to you, as often as needed, "This is a time to take your ETS."

When we learn of large scale tragedies, in the U.S. and internationally, we will post a small bottle of ETS for Humans to the top right corner of our website, and post a photo of it on Facebook to remind you: Take ETS now.

That's the signal: A picture of ETS for Humans that's linked to this message on our website.

When you see that bottle, it's your reminder to take ETS right now, and continue to take it 3 to 5 times daily for the next 5 days. (Or take it longer if you need.)

This is to get you into the habit of automatically reaching for ETS anytime you receive news that shocks and hurts you. It's hard to think straight at those times, so it has to be a habit that requires no thought.

After you've taken your ETS, when your head stops reeling and you ask yourself what you can do to make a difference this time, we encourage you to start here:
