> I think the idea is optimal stress. If you are forced to do things that make you panic in the name of exposure therapy, it'll just ingrain the response. I was on a board about emetophobia, and apparently forcing exposure often backfires. You need to be relatively comfortable with each phase before moving forward.

>Hi Dinah, I agree totally. Although I do not have the emetophobia problem with my ocd-I know that many do suffer from this fear- hey lets face it, even *normal people* usually have a problem w/this bodily function!
