I have had my 3rd week of CBT (cognitive behavioural therapy) – so far so good! Keeping a diary each day over each week between sessions helps, plus the support of my other half helps too, reassurance from the odd text, and when he is home safe and sound helps me more than words can say.
One thing I hate is my overthinking, thinking something is going on that isn’t and due to the actions of others I know these thoughts are not happening, but due to the behaviour of people in the past it is hard not to overthink “what if’s”, this week my diary consists of including situations, triggers i.e
- What happened
- Who with?
Also concentrating on feelings
- What emotion did I feel at the time?
- What else?
- How intense was it?
- What did I notice in my body?
- Where did I feel it
