'Progression equals time. Time equals death'. It's a thought that consumes Ed Zine, a handsome, athletic twenty-four year old. The victim of a debilitating form of obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD), Ed's illogical mind tells him that if going forward in time moves him closer to death, reversing the action will carry him away from it. It took a full year of trust before Dr. Jenike would be allowed to enter the nightmarish prison created by Ed Zine's isolating obsession.Breaking a cardinal rule of medicine, Jenike decided that the best care he could offer the Ed was simple friendship. Medicine after medicine, behavior modification after behaviour modification, and even exposure therapy - nothing seemed to work until one day the exhausted doctor broke down in front of Ed, triggering a turning point. Zine had to find a way to honour the love he'd been shown by his great doctor. Using his own determination, Zine forced himself to do fewer repetitions and slowly began to reverse his mental gymnastics.
