you've probably all heard this technique for curing yourself from negative self talk, but here's what happened to me.

at one point, i had a baaad habit of saying, nobody loves me, you can't do anything right (and other such like) many times throughout the day.

my therapist told me to answer back in the character of one of my best friends. i chose a friend with a particularly acerbic wit who, herself, is no stranger to mood disorders.

after a few days of "hearing" her voice lecturing about the absolute inaccuracy and pathetic nature of my negative commentary, i did actually begin to get better about stopping it.

it was just a small accomplishment, i know, but i'm glad because i felt really dragged down by those hateful words that were making me even more sick than i already was.

one problem down, 999 to go!
