>You are fighting 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.

Very well said, IMO. That's a great summary.

The thoughts are just thoughts, they are not reality, and there is no way Bill is going to act out on them. People who actually do act out on bad thoughts do not spend hours having OCD about them!

Once Bill is not anxious about the thoughts, he won't act out on them... they will just eventually go away.

I don't think Wellbutrin would help OCD. I know the doctor mentioned Lamictal, which seemed to produce some emotional numbing before. Although not highly evidence based, I was wondering whether a different AED such as Trileptal might help. I know Bill's doc didn't want to use Lyrica.
