Why not me?

"This disease, why did it choose me?" wrote Aya Ikeuchi in her diary when she found out that she was diagnosed with an incurable neurological degenerative disease. But for us 'healthy' ones, we should ask ourselves, Why didn't it choose me? What if it had?

Now, it is not easy to really know how it feels being in a situation that you have never been in. Yet, I believe that if we are able to convince ourselves that we are going to die in 6 months, we would gain much perspective in our lives.

What would you do if you were going to die soon and knew it?

I used to ask "Why me?" what with my spine abnormality and all. it took almost a slip away from life to make me realise that it made me stronger, no matter how painful it was and still is. I guess the saying "you never know what you've got until you lose it" is true. It's sad, we just cant stress it enough on everyone
