Re: CBT success stories?
I have been in CBT for about 6 weeks now. I am not taking medications either. I think the therapy has helped me in the are of self-esteem, the way I view myself and this disorder, and in managing stress. I have coupled this with Lucinda Bassett's Attacking Anxiety tapes and have made good progress.
I am not anxiety free... yet. But much further than where I was. My depression ( or funk as I like to call it!lol ) has lifted, and it has made it much easier to deal with this.
Give the CBT a try. Go in with the attitude that this is going to work, and give it 100%, and I bet you get better soon.
