Therapy can be a fantastic way for people to overcome trauma from their past, and to disclose things that they otherwise wouldn't have the courage to. However, we don't often think about the therapists themselves, and what they go through while listening to these truly heartbreaking stories day in day out.
One person took to Reddit to find out what were some things that patients had disclosed to therapists, that therapists simply couldn't shake from their mind, by asking: "Therapists of Reddit, what's the most disturbing thing a patient has disclosed to you?"
The answers were, as you may expect, disturbing, shocking, and gut-wrenching, and here are some of the most tragic of all.
