I had THE talk with my son today. No, this isn't the sex talk. It's the no one else will say this to you-- so I will talk. You have a mental illness that needs treatment. It was a hard talk; there were recriminations and hang ups. But we muddled through it. We covered essential territory: responsibility for one's life, focusing on what you don't have will defeat you, you must do something different to get different results and the in a nutshell or a sentence: how to be happy: Learn the art of appreciating what you have. Pretty good.
