As per the title. CBT was suggested to me by one of my GPs a few months ago, but I declined it. Her predecessor actually suggested anti-depressants but I politely told her where to shove them!
I'm hypo, on Levo but still symptomatic. I've done my homework, and consider myself reasonably intelligent and clued-up about hypo problems (when the foggy head allows!!). I've been having Medichecks tests, and supplementing with advice from the wonderful people on this forum, and I also have a plan of action going forward (1. One further tweak to the supplements, 2. Try gluten free for a few months, 3. Consider DIO2 gene test to check if not converting, 4. Consider adrenals test, 5. If all else fails, then I have a name of a private endo that could possibly help).
HOWEVER, we all know what a long tortuous journey this can be, and I find myself getting very "low" and frustrated at times because nothing is happening quickly enough for my impatient self . So I'm wondering whether CBT might help me cope better whilst I work through my action plan. Has anyone used it successfully? I know there are different types, depending on what illness you have. I also know there have been recent reports/studies saying CBT is not the wonder cure that the medics claim, so I'm getting confused! I'm more than willing to try any positive action that will help me along this journey, but I don't want to waste my time on something that might be pointless, or might do more harm than good. Any advice or tips would be much appreciated xx
