I don't think you understand. Good in a sarcastic way. If you have a thought and your response to the thought is, "That's a good idea, I'll rape and kill my mother after I'm done watching The Blacklist." You are sarcastically dismissing the thought and delaying gratification.

>I would honestly rather die, or live my hole life in this hell than ever let my mind perceive that idea as good.

You are fightingg tooth and nail against 'perceiving that idea is good' when in all reality you are never going to really feel like its ok to act out any of your worst thoughts. All your worst thoughts are junk-they aren't real and born of your imagination. The problem is you want to stay anxious about the thoughts because you feel if you aren't anxious about the thoughts you will actually succumb to them which is just not true.

>Could also be why the types of ocd least responsive is the sexual, violent, religious subtype

Then how was I able to overcome the same type of OCD?

You're afraid of the thoughts and you're afraid of the anxiety your thoughts generate. And the funny thing is your thoughts aren't real.
