Our expert says:
I hesitate to bang my favourite drum, but one of the elements in CBT that attracts me is the focus on our habits of thought, and the way we routinely assess the world and what it does to us, our expectations and evaluations. I dislike highveld winters, but my question to myself is how to manage the best icy and smoggy day I can find, rather than concentrating on how I don;t enjoy inhaling iced pollution.
As for your husband's remark, one couldsay that all of us, on the forum or off it, are mental cases, only those of us on it have recognized we have problems and needs and are working on it, and those who are not on the forum are much further back than that.
