Today I have my first one to one CBT session.
It's so important right now I get some help to put me on the road to going back to the work place.
On a good day I feel I can do it, on a bad day I'm scared I will never work again and wonder how I'm going to survive.
It is still hard for me to come to terms with this debilitating illness, and even acknowledge I have an illness,,,,,,,,,,,but I have,,,it's not normal to want to stay in your bedroom 24/7 ..time goes fast, not slow as you would imagine staying in one room. It is very comfortable here and I have a nice view when I choose to look out.
I wonder how on earth I got to this point. I was always strong, a manager, a mentor, great skills,respected, diplomatic, able to diffuse problematic situations, a single mum who brought up two beautiful daughters, a great shoulder to cry on, the one who made people laugh and smile,the life and soul of the party, the event organiser, always reasoning, ever thoughtful and caring.someone people want around them.....some still do want me around them but I don't seem to cope with that very well now and can let people down so avoid
I hope CBT can help because I can't help thinking what a waste. My problem is I like to please people but I must say how awful I feel today in the session, and not try and brush it off so that I don't feel I am being a nuisance.
