Can someone please give some examples of mental compulsions? I think that may be what is short circiuting my exposures. I know things like rumination, worst case scenario, spiraling into what ifs, trying to argue or reason with the intrusive thought, trying to convince yourself it isn't true. But I think there some that I don't know about and probably some more subtle compulsions that I am engaging in without realizing it. I have an appt with my counselor on Thursday to discuss this.
