Our levels of acceptance fluctuates during the working-through process. When we have a setback we get caught up in our old ways of thinking and feeling. Some people may again start to doubt they have the disorder, and begin to worry that the diagnosis may be incorrect.

Non-acceptance means we are only making the situation worse for ourselves. We all have periods of doubt about the diagnosis. If this does happen it is important to go back and talk with our doctor.

Compounding this doubt are the anxiety symptoms and how they change. Once we get on top of one symptom, another one takes its place. Any new symptom needs to be checked by our doctor, and sometimes we may feel like a hypochondriac. However, it is more important for us to know what the new symptoms are, instead of continually worrying. If we are told the new symptom is another anxiety symptom, we need to accept the diagnosis and not get caught in the vicious circle again.
