What is Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is a psychotherapeutic approach that addresses dysfunctional emotions, maladaptive behaviors and cognitive processes and contents through a number of goal-oriented, explicit systematic procedures. The name refers to behavior therapy, cognitive therapy, and to therapy based upon a combination of basic behavioral and cognitive principles and research. Most therapists working with patients dealing with anxiety and depression use a blend of cognitive and behavioral therapy. This technique acknowledges that there may be behaviors that cannot be controlled through rational thought. CBT is “problem focused” (undertaken for specific problems) and “action oriented” (therapist tries to assist the client in selecting specific strategies to help address those problems).

Things I forgot to tell you yesterday

Good morning my loves! I completely forgot to talk to you about rehabilitation… I’m suppose to start next Thursday, it’s going to be three times a week, I think It’s gonna be ergo therapy and kinesiotherapy I have no idea what it implies but I hope it helps. I have a small problem though, it’s going to be from 9 am to 12 PM, how is that gonna work? I can’t remember the time I woke up before 10 AM.. Oh yeah I remember.. it was for an exam last month and I didn’t sleep at all the night before because I didn’t want to miss it. My salary depends on it so am I going to skip three nights of sleep per week? Or am I going to take my chances and hope the Seroquel will let me get out of bed. I have mixed about it.. I still feel it’s gonna be a good thing for me to have a schedule. Other problem I’m gonna have to move my therapy sessions… maybe I’m being OCD about it but I don’t like that.. at all..I have my little routine on Wednesdays Ugh… anyways I’ll talk to her about it next week. Did I tell you how much I love my psychologist? She doesn’t take my BS and I don’t have homework hehe! She finds a way to make me do stuff without telling me… When I get my degree I wanna be just like her :). 

I’ve been wondering if I am bipolar… because sometimes I get really exited, have a thousand projects and become very creative. Sometimes I wake up in the middle of the night to do research on that crazy new idea that pops up in my head. I’m know I don’t have full blown manic episodes but maybe hypo-mania or I can just be creative. I definitely have some traits…I’m going to stop now because I try my best not to diagnose myself. 

I’m hungry and I have no bread… I’m trying to convince myself to go to the buy some.Jack would be so happy to go with me… Ok let me do it for Jack.. and for my stomach! My plan for the day is to finish the laundry, start to read the book I borrowed at the library then diner at A.’s place. Her mom is here and she’s going to cook use some delicious food so No take out today :). I’m gonna go buy the bread now… Have a nice day my loves and I’ll post later. Kisses
