$1000 or more to solve this OCD symptom

Posted by OCDsalivator on August 18, 2003, at 1:25:18

I don't know what else to do other than offer cash to anyone who can think of a way to solve this OCD symptom without medication. I tried over 20 different medications spanning 15 years and have also been in bed tired from medication for 15 years and am never taking medication ever again.

Whenever I think about my mouth, I salivate. This is caused by my OCD (my OCD makes me keep thinking about salivation...which in turn, makes me salivate). The salivation prevents me from doing things like talking, singing, etc. And it also causes damage to my mouth because when I swallow, my tongue rubs against my gums and makes them bleed.

I have had this symptom for 2 years and have been to OCD specialists with no idea how to treat this behaviorally. (The medication makes it somewhat tolerable but that's it.) I have fought and won over every other OCD symptom you can think of, but no one has any idea how to cure this one. The hard part in curing this symptom is that I can't just simply stop doing it (which usually cures other OCD symptoms).

For Godssakes help me from this Hell. If you can help I will give you all the money I possibly can and I'm sure you could write a book about it too, as well as treat any other OCD symptom imaginable.
