    Im trying CBT on myself

    and i think its working out good! Ive always been the paranoid one in a relationship n my psychologist recognised that as a type of anxiety. I did have a panic disorder early this year and CBT helped me to overcome that. So glad now i know that im not some psycho crazy chic!!
