RE: Reframing your mind to battle depression and CBT
I'm not lying in bed that much. Although I do wake up really late and tend to have trouble falling asleep. I recently installed F.lux on my computer and that seems to help with cutting on the moving around to find the right spot to doze off on. The downside with f.lux is that it changes the color so I have to remember to turn it off if I'm doing color sensitive work.

Funny enough I was looking at local CBT trainers. Most are women so not sure how well they would be. I know a lot of the guys who do it as well from seeing them around especially at my gym. I wouldn't want one that I knew really well. Also they seem to be from $80 to $200 a session. Some take my insurance some don't. But not sure how long cbt therapy last for and how often. My current therapist is usually an hour every 2-3 weeks.

I appreciate that example of rational thinking/self defense lizard of oz. Its nicer to see more examples of that. That's something that looks like it could be very helpful to train myself to think like that.

@cardguy- that quote was specifically mentioned in the book.

@knowitall- no to meds right now. Tried a lot before and I don't like the dullness zombie like state I get in. I am taking st. johns wart which help a tad, but its more my core thought process that seems wrong.
