    Thank you for writing about your experience. I think in at least some cases, with some therapists, that CBT could be very very superficial and be sort of llike "Just put on your happy face and everything will be fine".

    Another thing which I would worry about, which I mentioned in a post before is this (and this could happen to some extent even with a CBT therapist who did not adopt the usual CBT School/Psychiatric thoughts on ME/CFS):




    Oh God, if only these people had any idea what this was like.

    Love it, excellent reply.

    From the Independent (UK Newspaper) 20th February 2010. I have put the best bit in bold. (For those outside the UK, CBT is the latest fad tool to be foisted on the population in general by the government.)
