I guess the only thing that I can add is that I have a rare form of OCD (repugnant thought disorder). For this the only real solution is "exposure", allowing the thoughts to happen because trying to suppress them is actually what causes them to reoccur over and over.
With your girlfriend this doesnt really quite sound like OCD. Although the thoughts are obsessive they dont seem to be related to routine, fear of cleanliness, fear of violence, sexual depravity or blasphemy. It sounds like a response to an extreme fear of death and loss.
My 2 cents, your girlfriend has death anxiety. The only real way to cope with this is to understand that death is inevitable and part of life and there is nothing to do to control it. A tall order I know.
Hope this helps.
Thanks for the reply! I will show her your post and we'll see if we can get something out of it. Thanks again!
