MBW and I were discussing about acquired disability tonight, comparing it to inherited disability with regards of which is harder to come to terms with, psychologically speaking. Would you, if you acquired a disability, hate knowing what you were now missing out on or if you had a disability from birth, would you lament what you have never had in the first place?
I would like to offer the following:
Imagine your favourite chocolate bar in the world. Now imagine there is only one bar of it. What would you prefer: One taste of that bar and know you can never have it again, or never taste it and not know what you missed out on?
Please comment and tell me. It would be interesting to know, especially from those with disabilities.
