I started because within the span of a year I had convinced myself I had Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinson's, Lou Gehrig's Disease, and Breast Cancer. After every conceivable test done under the sun I realized I was a hypochondriac and my problems were mental, not physical.

I also hated myself, ignored my husband, was on the brink of divorce, and had lost 40 pounds in one month. It was frankly more of a relief to me to believe that my problems were mental and not a result of something devastatingly physical.

I continue because I don't want to relapse. When I started I was diagnosed with Major Depressive Disorder. I am now down to 2 sessions a month and will soon be down to one a month. I am quickly approaching my two year mark in therapy. By this time next year I should certainly be out of therapy.

CBT has been my salvation.
