Each person does the program in there own time. Some do it more than once. Two important things, do it all and in order. Take a break when it becomes a chore rather than something you "want" to do. "have to" is negative. It will only work if you really want it to. This is one time when repetition only works if it is truly positive. You are what fixes you, the program is the guideline.

How are you finding it, does it help and more so does it make sense.

My understanding is that it's important to stick with the program guidelines and be consistent about doing the homework. If I don't do the homework properly how will I ever improve and advance?

Why are you forcing yourself, You can't force this to go away, that makes it worse.

Hi everyone. I am new to the panic program and I am currently doing advanced anxious thought forms. I am having trouble motivating myself to do them because writing out my anxious thoughts makes me feel worse. I have just started doing the advanced form so I am hoping that the emphasis on challenging the anxious thoughts will make me feel better, but so far I find myself avoiding doing the homework. I know that avoidance is one of the major problems with anxiety and I am working hard to put myself in uncomfortable situations and I feel like I'm doing okay with that, but what I'm really having trouble with is confronting the negative thoughts in my own head. Instead of thinking about my thought patterns, I find myself watching television or going (or trying to go) to sleep. When I do force myself to do the homework, I end up feeling worse about myself and feeling like I will never get over my anxiety and never be happy. Is this normal at this early stage in the program? I think I read somewhere that when it comes to facing your anxiety it has to get worse before it gets better. Is this true? Is this what's happening with me?
