Ep198: How Cognitive Distortions Block You From Reversing Your Type 2 Diabetes
We have many thoughts in our brains that lead to feelings and actions that keep us from living a life free of type 2 diabetes. Cognitive behavioral therapists call many of these cognitive distortions. Cognitive distortions are thought processes that lead to misinterpretations of experiences we have. Frequently these thoughts are over exaggerations or irrational understandings of the events in our lives. These misunderstandings lead us to stop trying. Either the thought error makes us believe it's too hard, it's impossible, or it won't matter anyway. These adulterations of reality block us from creating the lives we want--free from type 2 diabetes. This episode describes these distortions, gives examples, and gives us a process for deconstructing these thoughts so that we can move past them. Check it out!
Disclaimer: If you have been medicated for your type 2 diabetes, BE CAREFUL! Remember, you have been medicated because of the way you have eaten in the past. If you change the way you are eating, your medications will have to change also. Watch your sugars closely, call your medical provided, review your sugars with them. They will adjust your medications as needed.
