When clients first visit with me they often ask, "Am I crazy?" They are asking the question in all seriousness. They'll tell me more of their story and ask again, "Am I crazy? You'd tell me, right?"
For some, the question is asked because the choices they've made seem utterly unreasonable. The things they've done to themselves seem outrageous and irrational. For others, the things that have been done to them are truly unbelievable.
