~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

It starts with a lie because patients always lie and he's both a patient and an addict. For a few minutes, he considers telling the truth, even though that's never gotten him anywhere. Not with Cuddy or Wilson, at least, who both cling to the belief that he can will himself through the pain. Nice of them to think so highly of him. Too bad reality makes him fail every time.

He tells the truth to himself, and that's enough.

The rest is here.
