Hi all,

I have been feeling horrible again, despite two (2!)nights out with friends in a row. I'm not thinking any distortions that I can identify, I just feel like crying, but I can't. Anyhow, I found a site called, and I did the survey. I then did a similar survey on, and both told me I had Limbic AD -which comes from an oversactive limbic system of the brain, and looks like depression. The plot thickens...

Anyhow, I did a google search for "limbic ADD" and found that our CBT cognitive distortions were listed here as ANT's - and a frequent symptom of Limbic Add'ers. Hmmmm...


Here it is:

Limbic Prescriptions

Rx #1: Every thought matters! Kill the ANTs in your mind.

Rx #2: Surround yourself with people who provide positive bonding

Rx #3: Great smells.

Rx #4: Philippians 4:8

"Finally, bretheren, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is of good repute, if there is any excellence and if anything worthy of praise, let your mind dwell on these things."

Rx #5: Medications include Norpramin, Tofranil, Wellbutrin and other antidepressants
Summary of ANT Types:

-- All or nothing thinking: thoughts are all good or all bad.
-- Always thinking: using words like always, never, every one, every time.
-- Focusing on the negative: only seeing bad in situation.
-- Fortune telling: predicting the worst possible outcome.
-- Mind reading: thinking you know what another person is thinking.
-- Thinking with feelings: believing negative feelings without questioning them.
-- Guilt beatings: should, must, ought or have to.
-- Labeling: attaching negative labels.
-- Blame: blaming someone else for your problems.
