Despite what a majority of us feel is a living hell, there are apparently many benefits to paralyzed life; that is according to Michael Collins who wrote the article "The benefits of disability" on the CDRF website.
Like me, you'll probably be infuriated.
Adding insult to injury, not only was this the opinion of one writer, CDRF found it worth putting up on Facebook. If we don’t say something, everyone will think that we too feel there are many benefits to disability.
The author's attitude, which CDRF seem to support, is exactly the kind of thinking that holds back a cure for paralysis and other disabilities. As long as people keep talking about our good fortune and all the supposed ‘benefits’, a cure will never be urgent, but it is. This guy makes it sound like being paralyzed is OK because of all the great benefits available.
