Is it wrong to want to feel numb like I'd rather feel nothing than any kind of pain?

    No one wants to feel pain, but the truth is, without pain, you can't know what the absence of pain is - joy.

    Also, feeling numb, from taking drugs etc.. only MASKS pain - it doesn't get to the root of the problem.. and problems that are not solved only grow bigger in the mind.. what we need to do is learn to COPE with pain.. masking pain, means you never learn to cope with it.. eventually the mask won't work..
