can you come wash my floors sweetie??!!
I'm so glad you can have a sense of humour about this. It's what gets me through! It's great that you can easily identify your distorted thinking. That makes it easier to turn it around. I find that can be half the battle. I often don't even realise that what I am thinking is utterly nuts until I discuss it with someone and they get a wierd look in their eyes! You thought what?! Then we can both have a laugh. CBT is so great at putting a stop sign in front of these thoughts and I find myself a great deal less exhausted at the end of the day when I use it. Deliberating IS exhausting.
Please let us know how you go, it's great to have you here with us. We all learn from one another.
