Exhausting myself first makes a lot of sense and I will try that! I’ve known to do that in the past. I think I’ve just been increasingly anxious lately and forget to use the skills I’ve learned.
I agree about the therapist. I was thinking about it more last night and agree that this program is for the social anxiety part and the therapist may be helpful in other ways. Having SA makes it SO hard to go talk to a therapist in person, obviously, but I’m willing to try anything right now. I’m so done with feeling this way.
The concentration issue is just that I’m so anxious, having all the thoughts swirling around in my head, that it makes it hard to retain anything.
I’m starting the program over today! I relooked at session 1 last night and am going to start on session 2 today and go from there (had only gotten to session 3 previously, several months ago). Fingers crossed, I’ll stick with it this time.
Thanks so much for the response. Have a great day!
