I'm also glad to be understanding myself better... it's going to take time, and effort.... she'll work with me and my other therapists as a team, which I was really glad to hear... it will be gradual, and I'm kind of scared - which I think is OK... there's possibility ahead.... good possibility....

NOTE:  please take a look at the links below for more info re CBT... Christina told me there's a body of research showing that meds (i.e. SSRIs) and CBT are a proven treatment for certain kinds of anxiety.
