Coping Mechanisms

I watched this YouTube video on coping mechanisms, to see if something like this related to my character. It's a short video defining what a coping mechanism is, and I wondered if this related to the idea of the main character hoarding balloons.

In this video, I noticed the woman speaking talked about "fantasy" as a coping mechanism. This is similar to how the woman in our story goes into a different state of mind- a fantasy of sorts- during the film, where she still believes her son to be alive.
