I have been in CBT therapy now for 11 months to tackle my depression, anxiety and raging hypochondria. It has worked wonders.

But it is hard, hard work to change your irrational thought patterns. At least for me. I always marvel at how people can do CBT for three months and they're fine. Not me. But my T also takes a pretty eclectic approach, he is not strictly CBT although that is his orientation.

I find CBT to be a relief. To know that I can aid my depression through thinking and to be at the point where I can identify my irrational thoughts and replace them with rational ones. I think that has taken me the longest. ANd also to get rid of all of the "shoulds" "musts" and "have tos" in my language and way of thinking.

I go once a week. Soon we'll go down to twice a month.

I know I would have enjoyed psychoanalysis as well, but I definitely could not afford that. I can't even really aford 4 times a month (with a copay of $35 per session)but I know I need it. ANd my T keeps convincing the insurance company I need it.
