    I'd take walking.

    I'd be the happiest man in the world if cured--I'd take a cure over $10 million without hesitation.

    Question Frankly, I can't even begin to understand why someone would trade off a cure

    for money.
    Bizzare? ...........or is it me?

    Just posturing, but possible reasons could be:

    1. Has it been so long for some of us that we could actually forget what our pre-sci lives were like to chose money?

    2. Has post sci life for some of us been so good that they would consciously chose money over ab life?

    Beyond bizzare actually, I can't underrstand.

    Fyi, I haven't read the whole thread yet, so pls excuse me if i'm a repeat.
    But since I'm at it, this subject is as foolish as Wise's concept of sex being as-satisfying
    post sci. Totally baffling suggestion.

It's very unfortunate that it took a severely disabling injury to change my view of the world. But I think if I had to name one positive to come out of what happened to me, this is it..
    Wow, i feel exactly the same way, pretty much word for word.

    When people ask me about my injury, one big reason it sucks that i can't magically be AB again tomorrow is that i know just how much i'd appreciate my life and health.

    I know that i could say work 10 hours a day at Burger King over a deep fryer for minimum wage, drive a hunk of shit car, and live in a small apartment, but if i was healthy, life would be beautiful so long as my daughter staid healthy also. I'd wake up with a smile on my face each day like i had just won the lottery simply because i could climb out of bed, dress myself, wack off if i wanted to, take a regular shower, and be a normal human being.

    When i hear normal every day healthy people complaining about problems in their life that they claim are stressful like money or job issues, i can't help sometimes thinking, man you have no idea how much i wish your biggest problems were what mine are.
