Benefits of incurable diseases…

Tonight is the start of random topic Tuesday.  Earlier in the week a friend of mine was joking about the benefits of her illness and said I should write a blog about it, so here it is:

  • Getting 3 stars on all the levels of the first Angry Birds level (you too can become a master).
  •  A familiar friendship with pharmacists and nurses.
  • Sparing yourself from the harmful rays of the sun.
  • Always being able to tell what time it is based on medication needs.
  • Getting up 30 minutes “early” only to take pills on an empty stomach (more time to yourself).
  • Being in multiple support groups…you make new friends this way.
  • Always having a charity to donate to.
  • Appearing knowledgeable about random diseases that no one has heard of…except Dr. House.
  • Talking to your elderly relatives about who has more ailments…they love this competition.
  • Vast knowledge of what is on TV late night/on demand since you can’t sleep due to pain/meds.
  • More time to blog since you are awake anyway.

As you can see, we’ve covered a vast variety of benefits, and you are welcome to comment below on this post if you think of more.  We are working towards changing any negative thoughts into a positive.  It’s not always easy, but, well, read my final quote of today.

“It takes but one positive thought when given a chance to survive and thrive to overpower an entire army of negative thoughts.”  ~Robert H. Schuller

  1. Great blog post!
    How about an immense appreciation for good doctors.
    Another one could also be the ability to live a life of simplicity out of per necessity. I enjoy the small things in life now.
