Turning OCD's "Miles" Back Into "Inches"

Recommended Posts

OCD takes an "inch" and changes it into a "mile" .

CBT examines that mile and, during therapy and the sufferer’s own hard work, turns the miles back into inches.

The inch is seen as not important and is then easily dismissed. 

Gradually, the inches occur less frequently and when they do are calmly eased away.

I get the analogy but I would suggest we need to go further, and say we don't want to even give OCD an inch, because it will eventually try and take that mile again eventually... So I would suggest we need to give it 0.00mm... i.e. not anything.

Nicely put :)

Triggers used to be everywhere for me. Now the inches are just occasional and I aim towards no imperial or metric measures :)
