I hate to admit this but...

I am really scared to go to my first CBT session. I do not want them to think I am a bad person or that I am a threat to anyone because I am not. Those that have gone what is it like? Should I be scared at all? My ocd is mainly anxiety with rare obsessional thoughts. My Pyschatrist told me not to take my ativan before I go because then the session is wasted. I just need some reassurance. Thanks

Hey ChillChris

Don't be scared, therapist hear things like this all the time, they train in this to help us and understand us. You are noot a threat and they will know that they will know its ur OCD take deep breaths and say this is going to be good for me a step to beating this problem not anything to worry about with them they are there to hear these things from us and help us deal with them I hope you have a good session God bless u always

Hi CC!

Exactly what ontheway said mate-I know your first CBT is scary, but nothing bad will come of it-quite the opposite in fact.

You take care, and be sure to let us know how it goes!

Much love

S
