Someone I loved once gave me a box full of darkness. It took me years to understand that this too, was a gift.
-Mary OliverI'm far from that realization, actually. In fact who ever gave me that box can take it right back and shove it.
Like i might've said before: if i were offered a cure tomorrow, i would snatch it up and run til my legs fell off. On the other hand, if i could choose to have my life without having experienced the tribulations and sacrifices of an unpredictable brain disorder, i'd probably find myself declining the offer. I might be a whole lot smarter, but i just don't think i'd hold it all in quite the same regard.
