I have some of the same distorted thinking-- I don't try to categorize it much. Pretty much just try to bring those thoughts/beliefs out in the open, and challenge them. My T got me to try to recognize the 'voice' that tells me to just give up. We named her Gertrude. So it motivates me some to think oh, there's Gertrude again, I've got her number and I'm not going to listen to her. And of course the real thing is to start taking action. It's very hard for me to just do a little at a time, and not have it be finished, and not have it be perfect, but that's what really gets things done eventually. Persistent effort over time.
