    ^ thats brilliant, Thanks!

    #14 is pretty much the conversation we had last night. 'Why dont you talk to me?' tries to 'You just need to grow up and get over it'




    Have i gone mad? Im afraid so. You're entirely bonkers. But i'll tell you a secret. All the best people are.

    I found them very touching, I was personally especially fond of 13 and 17, I really liked the way 17 shows other people's ignorance as it keeps getting worse (and contributing to it in my interpretation)

    Has anyone had cognitive behavioral therapy for anxiety? My doctor has given me a number to ring to arrange an appointment for some long term help for me, I just wondered if anyone here has done it and how much it helps?

    Not for anxiety, no. I did receive CBT for years for other things, though. It didn't do a thing to help me and it took the professionals years to admit that I was just not benefiting from it. Everyone is different though. For most people, it works.

    Okay, so #4 is definitely applying to me right now. WHY can't I just shake things off like normal people? Darn you, guilt complex
