THanks for the post and as lyn said, kudos. I definitely know that my perception of things is what makes my anxiety. I do the same thing everyday, and coming from someone who has been working adamently on that very thing for the past few weeks, it makes a big difference. When I saw my therapist on Thursday, he said he could definitely see a change in the way I was talking, my body language, everything. It will take a while for me to get through this negative thinking pattern, but as you said it's years of undoing. I take it one day at a time as well, and like everything else it's always one step forward and sometimes a step back, but we can do it. Best of luck to you. Thanks again!!
