I see quite often see methods on rational statements/thinking. How much have they worked on treating your SA (alot OR moderately successful)?

Rational thinking helps me a great deal during panic attacks but its' value is short-lived for my everyday anxiety which overwhelms it.

i feel the same. its a never ending cycle ....you want to think you can control it or have a handle on it but sometimes...im on my way to the e.r. Even now, after so many years of dealing with it. youd think id know a panic attack between a heart attack but...at my age, i guess i just get scared and better safe than sorry. idk? :(

Rational thinking does help with the control, especially if you learn it during CBT. Sometimes however, it’s hard to keep rational and not let your emotions run wild. That the thing with anxiety it’s irrational. But I suppose with training it might get easier to keep rational.

Is rational thinking an aspect of CBT? or same thing?
