Without the blood, the sweat, the trembling, the oppression in my lungs, the fog which shrouded my eyes and ears, would I have had the courage to go deeper and deeper ...? I don't think so. If I hadn't had the occasion to sink into the illness perhaps I wouldn't have had the energy to go to the very end of the confrontation with myself.
