> Have you been able to reschedule your CBT appointment? I'm anxious to hear what you think of it. Opinions seem decidedly mixed (even within myself).

No I haven't tried. I did have two abortive attempts at CBT but i didn't give it a real trial. I think in the first case the therapist was just too young and wouldn't listen to me and I wouldn't disagree with him because he WAS so young and it was his first job etc. We just didn't click and couldn't communicate. The second woman was older and I liked her but I was so anxious at the time I would stay up all night before I went to see her and then when she did a relaxation exercise to begin I would go to sleep. It was really kind of funny. I also found out she knew someone I did socially and it made me really uncomfortable. I have been working on it by myself and my scores on the Burns inventories have gone down by about a third on anxiety and depression. Now I'm thinking what I need is a vacation. Actually I was thinking I needed to leave the country and leave no forwarding address but I'm trying to compromise on a vacation. Thanks for remembering :)
