Using Metaphors for OCD

by David

If you feel that your OCD is trying to tempt you into doing something that you DO NOT want to do, you can try using ideas that you hear on TV--ideas that have no relation whatsoever to your thoughts, but they really can fit in some way. Or you can think of a person you know that loves playing with their magic 8 ball. They ask it a question, shake it, flip it and read the answer. They depend so much on this rediculous toy, even though what it says isn't true. Your thoughts are the magic ball, telling you things that aren't true--not by a long shot! You can eventually learn that those magic balls are just toys--what they tell you isn't true! Then you just get tired of listening to your OCD. They're just toys! That's all they really are!
