Re: needing help
Hullo, I'm no professional but maybe I could help. Well, to get to the point, he probably would do well with some exposure therapy, it's worked for many cases of OCD. He should get help right away if it's really bad. If he has intrusive thoughts, he could try these two things. At the same time is he wants to:
When an intrusive thought takes place, imediantely imagine a big stop-sign with the word STOP! on it.
2. Rubber-Band Method
Wear a rubber-band on your wrist. When an intrusive thought occurs, snap the rubber band.
I remind you that I'm no professional, the best thing would be for him to get professional help.
