For physical pain, we have an entire pharmacopeia of medicine. But for deep emotional pain – we’ve got nothing. I know, I know, there are pharmaceuticals out there. Medications for various emotional states can be extremely useful in some situations, so I’m not dissing medication at all.

Some things cannot be fixed. They can only be carried.
