they might be both right
the problem isn't with them as much as with me having gad and ocd
ocd and gad therapy seem both the same and different once you identify the problem
with gad once you know the problem it's okay to reassure yourself that you're just feeling anxiety and it's just adrenaline rushes
while with ocd once the problem has been identified then the next step is to accept uncertainty (which means if a thought about dying keeps popping up and causes anxiety then the anxiety-therapist says to reassure yourself that you're just feeling anxiety and are not dying while the ocd therapist would say to accept the thought and consider that you might be dying to habituate to the thought...see the conflict?)
