My first session was to go and have a coffee with my therapist at a cafe,. I felt very nervous and anxious but after a while the anxiety actually went down. The other two sessions has been riding the subway and eating lunch at a restaurant. Apart from the sessions with the therapist I also have to expose myself to the situations that trigger the anxiety for approx 2 hours / day.
I already feel a lot better and hopefully the CBT when completed will mark the end of me 18 months of illness.
