    So basically, be on your own with it all and wait for your weekly CBT wonder class? These people need a reality check or walk a day in our shoes....

    I wonder why he said that or even asked ? (being on a health anxiety forum)
    Half the battle in any therapy is getting on with the therapist as you are basically divulging very private info to a complete stranger,regardless of their qualifications.

    Do you like this guy as you obviously aren't doing what he suggested.

    If I don't see you again, all the very best.

    I've said so much many times. It's cathartic to write out your fears and feelings and there's a certain amount of comfort knowing you're not alone but it also feeds the dragon.

    Basically yes... The week or so away from a forum seeking reassurance in the short term will help you in the long term. The times you are struggling and using the techniques you're being taught are much more beneficial than seeking reassurance.

    Does an oncologist have to be a survivor to treat cancer? Same point applies. "Those people" deal with people who are struggling with these issues on a daily basis and have been doing so for years.

    The forum will always be here in a couple of weeks. Why not take a week off and see if it does help? Worse case scenario is that you see no improvement and start posting again in a week.

    Regardless of your motives, you're doing something completely counter to what a trained mental health professional is advising.

    I agree with yenool in taking a break. Being here and reading others posts (aside from responding) is still reassurance seeking behavior. Those that seek the healing path are told the same thing. That's why you no longer see them on the boards.

    Is one week of not coming on here really going to make a difference ?

    I respect you Fishmanpa but when you say "Those that seek the healing path are told the same thing. That's why you no longer see them on the boards" does that imply they are cured or on the way to recovery, and if so wouldn't it be beneficial to hear from them to encourage others, rather than just vanish..
