I’ve come to seek experiences or advice, basically my nurse is helping me challenge, in two weeks time I will be challenging one of my biggest and most long standing fears, Spies. I don’t know why we’re doing this now and not telepathy, but maybe because that’s still so raw he’s decided against it. It’s a cbt experiment, exposure therapy and thought challenging, i’ve got to look around (in town, something i’m terrible at), search for men in black (I have bigger explanations than men in black but basically 20/30 year old men in suits from a cafe window. There’s many things that can go wrong and I don’t know how i’m going to react, I’m terrified, I have to make eye contact (and sustain it for a few minutes), look around, and listen to what he’s saying, I’m worried telepathy will take over, but i’m equally worried i’ll be proven wrong and will have a crisis of identity like other times.
What I would like to know is if anyone has done such experiments and challenges, whether with someone or on your own/ self driven as part of treatment?
I’d really appreciate any experiences people have, i’m beginning to worry, and I don’t want to worry too much or i’ll be overthinking and ruin the whole process…
Anyway I hope you’re all coping as best as you can,
