Here's everything you're going to hear in therapy, minus all the bullshit: Life is crap. When the pain you feel because of it becomes so bad you can no longer function, you should take drugs that will numb your senses so that you can go on functioning. Why it's important to go on functioning is never explained, however. That's all there is to it. Keep that in mind and you will save the many thousands of dollars and many hundreds of hours you would otherwise have to spend in therapy in order to get the exact same message.
