You should create not text layer, but text-selection (type mask tool) , then apply needed filters/effects.

So i guess another way would be to make a duplicate layer of the text thing.  Then to edit that right?

You can do some effect with type layer
1. Layer > Effect
2.  before you want to use filter with type layer you should convert it to normal layer from Layer > Type > Render Layer then you can use any filters you want but  the text will no longer editing anymore.
