Are you grateful for your disability?
I watched a local news cast about a young college man with Cerebral Palsy. He said that he believes that his disability is a gift and that he’s thankful for it. He was so positive about everything in his life. All I could do is snicker and go “RIGHT!”
I have type 1 bipolar and it is not a gift and there is nothing positive about it (except cleaning the house at 3am because of manic energy). Over the past year and a half I’ve had two major swings, the manic left me hallucinating and in the hospital and the depression almost ruined my marriage because I ceased to function. Now that I’ve “awakened” I’m seeing the damage and it breaks my heart. How could anyone feel blessed by their disability?
Thanks for letting me go there. So anyone? Anyone thankful for their disability and why? Give me some hope.
