Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is a psycho-social intervention that aims to reduce symptoms of various mental health conditions, primarily depression and anxiety disorders. This therapy form focusses on the present and offers help when the thinking, feeling, experiencing or acting is disturbed.
Endo and mental health: Every chronic disease limits life to a greater or lesser extent. Many endo patients are burdened by the fact that their activities, their love life or their diet are affected by the disease and not all wishes can be realized. Mental health suffers as a result. It is therefore no surprise that there is a high presence of depression and anxiety among endometriosis patients.
A kind FemXX note: Many Endo-Fighters report that they were prescribed psychotherapy by doctors when they sought medical help. As a result, we do not feel taken seriously, which further worsens our physical and psychological condition. Those who suffer from endometriosis need advice and treatment from medical specialists. Because: endometriosis is a disease, not an imagination. However, mental health support in addition to physical treatment can strengthen patients in their life journey. Endo-Fighters have to make huge efforts to cope with the disease. Therapy and mindfulness have helped many to develop good strategies for this challenge.
