after over 20 years of trying to help anxiety/panic sufferers Ive noticed that a reason some dont get better is excessive pride, they are too proud to admit they have a nervous illness, too proud to try any CBT and much too proud to take any anxiety meds
 
alcahol and tobacco are OK but taking valium would be an admission of failure and weakness for them
 
remember, life is not a dress rehursal

I had accepted the depression and anxiety but what I learnt in hospital was I hadn't accepting the illness within when the scary thoughts came out, I just wanted to run off crying and screaming.

CBT is really hard challenging thought patterns that have been there for years but I've just started and my pdoc does a lot of psychotherapy so they'll be a lot more in the future.
