    Finding a silver lining is great. Everyone has gifts that are the result of pain and personal handicaps, but that doesn't erase or minimize the negative. If I lose both of my my legs tomorrow, I might be given a new lease on life, but I'm STILL disabled because I cannot walk the way most humans can, and I still require extra help.
    It's all just about whether or not you consider the good to outweigh the bad - if, had you a choice, you would choose your place in life again?
    This is one hell of a patronizing thread!
