    Twice now. Was supposed to have it last week, then this week, now it's like next week. Oh well, I suppose I should be grateful that I'm at least getting something. It is free counselling after all.
    Who is providing it? I certainly would not call the NHS free :p:

    Oh, it's some local counselling service in my borough. I got referred there by my GP.

    Does anyone else find it frustrating when parents feel that shouting at you will cure you of having a mental illness?

    My mum used to do this before I was diagnosed.. even when I explained to her I felt extremely low.. However ever since my attempt she has all of a sudden shut up mainly :rolleyes:

    I guess some people just dont really understand/find it frustrating...

    On Tuesday I have a meeting with a doctor I'm almost certain I've never met, even though he seems to know me, to arrange times for my first CBT session with him. I really, really wish I had been paying more attention when I agreed to that, because I have no idea what the **** CBT is.

    On the other hand I went to English today and found it really easy. But I also found out I have to write a personal reflective essay next Friday (the first draft, at least) and hand in my proposal for what I'll be writing about on Wednesday. I guess that's what I missed by not attending the first two weeks. I really have no idea what to write about. Nothing particularly interesting has happened in my life, and my only strong interest is literature, which I don't want to write about.

    **** it, I'll just make up some ******** about a deep personal experience that never actually happened.

    They'll probably explain what CBT is during the first session, I think it's just like looking at things you think and then looking at why you put a negative slant on them which apparently leads to depression. Or something like that.....you could wiki it?

    Making **** up is probably the best solution. :five: like those lame job interview questions where it's asking for a situation when you worked in a team or some **** - it's like an examination in creative writing :p:

    CBT encourages you to talk about:

    * how you think about yourself, the world and other people
    * how what you do affects your thoughts and feelings
    Wonderful..:banghead:

    From what people seem to say it can be quite effective if you go into it with an open mind.. but then I guess having an open mind is generally something a depressed person does not have? :p:

    I'm really scared about going back to uni. Was talking about it in CBT today and I've got no idea how I will spend all my time. I feel like I have too much choice and freedom and I don't know what the right things to do are. And I'll probably have to do everything alone which is kinda lame.

    There's free online CBT that you manage and do yourself, called MoodGym (which I found out about through my GP, designed by an Australian university, so it's legit) - you could check that out before you go to your appointment to have more of an idea of what it is actually like. It's pretty simple stuff really.
    It's not for me though, I found out my problem wasn't at all related to my thinking in that way.

    CBT can mean:

    * CBT, a CBC Radio One station in Grand Falls-Windsor, Newfoundland and Labrador
    * Ceneri Base Tunnel, a railway tunnel under construction in Switzerland
    * Certified Broadcast Technologist, a professional title regulated by the Society of Broadcast Engineers

    ....apparantly.... *cheerful post*

    Feeling surprisingly strong and good at the moment.. I penciled this time when everyone is moving off to uni as one of the times I would come close to rock bottom again but its just not happening. Oh well.. certainly not going to moan :p:

    Frustrated that my moving over from the home treatment team too the CMHT has been pushed back a week because of me being ill (there not allowed to come see me.) But I guess good things come with time.
