Cognitive Behavorial Therapy
« on: May 27, 2014, 01:55:50 PM »
How is everybody doing, i'm new to this forum, and i'm not sure if this is already a topic, but I am currently dealing with generalized anxiety disorder, and I have been for about two years now. I'm planning on attempting Cognitive Behavioral therapy in order to address my issues, and I also want to incorporate self-help to deal with my issues on my own. I just wanted to know if anyone had any ideas or practices with self-help and cbt that works, and helps them reduce their anxiety noticeably that they wouldn't mind sharing, like how often they address their thoughts, how they do so, and how do they change their reactions in response to anxiety-inducing stimuli? Please, I do not want to read any negative comments, or discouraging, and wallowing opinions, the first step to making progress comes with a confident attitude, and I intend on working on changing my thought patterns for as long as it takes until my anxiety levels return to normal, any input would be appreciated, thank you.

There is a CBT exercise that has really, really helped me...

Its called TEA (Thinking Error Analysis) Forms. I do them for 10-15 minutes a day for every anxiety producing thought that swirls around my mind.

Learn how to do them here:

Leo, I've had GAD for about 5 months.  Send me a private message if you can.
