Chronic Fatigue: The Ultimate Enemy of Rheumatoid Arthritis

How cognitive behavioral therapy can help

Cognitive behavioral therapy can help you to reveal unhealthy thought patterns that may be impacting both your mood and your behavior. A therapist can help to reframe your thought process so that you can improve your way of thinking towards a more positive, productive, and healthier approach. Emotional support groups are also a great way for you to express your thoughts, opinions, and feelings on your life with RA. Sharing your experiences and listening to others’ experiences can be a therapeutic approach towards easing anxiety and feelings of isolation. While therapy and emotional support groups may not help to improve or overcome chronic fatigue, it can be quite comforting knowing that those around you recognize and understand what you are going through.
