This time a tough love kind of answer as seen though my quirky nature. So be warned.
If you could “cure” the disabilities that affect your life, would you? Why or why not?
Could I cure it and would I? Yes, I wouldn't wish a stroke on my best friend or worst enemy. Hold that thought. Come to think of it, my worst enemy had a stroke and died before he had to deal with the disabilities, and my best friend had a stroke too. Hmmm. I may have to rethink this statement.
Humans as a whole never know what they are capable of until they are faced with it. I wouldn't have tried half the things I do now with only one working hand if I hadn't had my strokes. I mean who in their right mind would want to? I wouldn't have near the self-satisfaction then as I do now in the things I can do.
It's a growth experience. Not that I wasn't fully grown or experienced before my stroke, but it's just different now. If you are given something you don't appreciate it near as much as something you had to fight or struggle for it to gain it. Maybe that's why I've always been a fighter. I've earned everything I've gotten. Personally, I've got some of the attitude of the button here----------->
I really didn't need another growth experience, but here I am again. Well, if I must go through yet another one, I'm going to do the best I can. Others may do the same or let it beat them down. Me, I'm going to meet the challenge. I'm hard headed like that.
If there was an instantaneous cure for stroke and paralysis, would having a stroke be that great of a deal? Probably not, but we'd be cheating ourselves of a lot of victories. Would we have the opportunity of recovering? Nope. Would we have the self-satisfaction of conquering the odds? Nope. But still I wish there was a little pill that would cure it all and make it all a bad dream. There are plenty of other things to make growth experience out of.
