Here is another one for me
Wrong: "I feel bad and am mad at myself because I'm not working on my therapy like I should be."
Right: "It will be okay, Sam. I have been doing great with my therapy and I will continue it tomorrow. The holidays have me really busy right now and besides that, I love myself. I am actually feeling pretty good today!"
P.S. I can not express enough how great the CBT therapy is :)

I am working on CBT on my own right now, but you are right on with this post, this is a prime example of what CBT canhelp you with as you work through the program.
To everyone: have a cool yule!
Wrong: I am a burden to my friends, family and colleagues. i am not worthy of happiness as i have made poor choices in the past.
Right: My friends, family and colleagues love and respect me, and try to understand what i deal with. i AM worthy of happiness, the mistakes of my past should be left there and i should focus on my future.
Wrong: i am stuck in this pity party rut and deserve to be here
Right: only i can change this and need to fix this- i deserve better than this
Sam and Members,

Thank you SO MUCH for starting this thread. I keep coming back to it and it really helps me stay in the moment and not let my anxiety manifest. It also has shown me what a pessimist I am!
wrong: What if the anxiety is so bad today, that the palpitations kick-in and get so bad that I have to go to the hospital?
