What I find so hard to understand is why I feel the way I do. I have had loads of good days so far this year but this last week has been awful, very depressed and nearly all of the physical symptoms. Unlike so many of you, I have suffered no traumas or other issues, in fact I don't have the pressure of going to work, no money worries, a very supportive husband and daughter and very understanding neighbours who are also great friends, five of which, including my husband, have, or do still suffer with anxiety/depression. My GP is wonderful and has shown nothing but interest and understanding for the two years since my condition was diagnosed. How does CBT help? Can it get to the bottom of all this. Has anyone found that it does change the way you think?
