> I know I've used the analogy before, but whats the point of taking painkillers when you refuse to take your hand off the stove element?

You first have to believe that you will survive without the stove.

The stove has left burns that need acute care (medication and/or psychotherapy) and scars that are vulnerable to reopening that can be reinforced with psychotherapy. In the case of wounds that won't heal, PTSD, long-term medication is often needed.
