    Re: CBT update

    I think talking to "real" people would be far more benefical than posting on here to be honest. I really strongly advise you to go and do it.

    Speaking online is different to real life. Real life is also different to social media.

    Talking to real people is much healthier, seriously.

    I dislike the stigma also I donít feel socialising with people with anxiety helps. Many people are ignorant to mental health including my partner parents. In all honesty I donít talk about my anxiety too often in real life.

    Re: CBT update

    Know the way to combat stigma, Phil? By bringing things out into the open.

    I had this conversation with myself a couple of years ago, and I realised I had to be open about my anxiety and depression so that the young people I work with (not to mention my colleagues) have just a tiny bit less reason to feel ashamed of any MH issues they might have themselves.

    True but you can’t change the older generations opinion. I believe more younger people suffer mental health these days due to social media pressures. A few of my friends have mentioned anxiety before but nobody is quite open to admit they suffer from it.

    Re: CBT update

    You will be with people who also have the same problems, with a leading therapist who deals with MH conditions. This is irrelevant about the stigma, cos you'll all be in the same boat. Blue is right tho !!!


    Just go and try it, you really have nothing to lose and you never know...

    I would rather seek more private CBT than talk about this in person in a group

    I asked them if it was group based the person on the phone had little idea. I am disappointed if it is group based and I doubt I would want to go. I was hoping for one to one CBT which is did privately. It shows the lack of resources on my area if it is group based. Money is tight right now so canít instantly book more private CBT but I may have to consider in a few months going private again. I feel let down by the NHS near me I once did have one to one seasons but when I was 16. Itís very disappointing if I have to spend more money.
    Stress control sounds ideal for you but if you've shut your mind to it then it's hopeless to try to persuade you.

    Good that you are considering going private in a few months though ...So you DO believe that you will survive coronavirus despite all your prophecies of doom!
