had my first cbt session yesterday and i was very nervous and anxious but after a while i felt more relaxed. i did find it very exhausting going over and over my issues and not really even makinga dent in them. i asked my teacher how old he was and he said 28, which to be honest i would prefer he was older and wiser but beggers cant be choosers when you have been waiting as long as i have. and besides he may turn out to be quite good, he says that i may be abel to relate better to some one around my own age.....? theres only one way to find out and he seems nice enough. was glad to get home dispite the big headache i brought with me, i hope it isnt going to be this exhausting everytime? he wanted to see me weekly but due to the fact i cant go out on my own i am relying on my mum to go with me and its really not fair to expect her to go up there weekly and sit waiting for an hour so ive arrange for it every two weeks. my goal is to get to weekly sessions and be able to walk there on my own as its only about 5-10 mins walk from my house if i avoid the busy town. i was under the impression i only got 6 sessions on the nhs but he has told me that he usally recommends 24 sessions and sometimes more which i was quite pleased about................actually help at last!!!!!!!!
thanks for listening and i hope you are all well today. xxxxxxxxx
