Thanks for the response, but I've already tried all that.

"CBT therapy might suggest that you don't just keep those thoughts in the back of your mind. You might write them all down and evaluate their real truth."

Yep I've done that, but the real truth is that the salivating is indeed causing real, non-imaginary, physical damage. (After swallowing continuously at a rate of over 10 times a minute, my gums start bleeding from my tongue rubbing against them.)

"And there's exposure and response prevention, which OCD CBT therapists seem to love. The idea there might be to try to let yourself salivate as much as you possibly can."

I can't do that either because the excessive swallowing causes physical damage.

That is why no one can think of a treatment plan for this.
