    A person with a disabled body can get along fine with a functioning mind. If your mind is gone, having a healthy body is irrelevant.

    As long as my noodle works I'm good. I like to be able to think clearly, remember my life, enjoy company and remember who my family and friends are. Without that there's nothing of my life with me. Losing my mental faculties is the biggest loss I could face.

    I'm working on getting in better shape, and I use to be in primo condition. I competed in roller skating and I was good. It takes serious athletic ability to do it. And you know what? I can still remember flying through the air! It's vivid in my mind all the routines. And the incredible strength and flexibility I have. I was just telling my husband the other day that in my mind I can still do it all. I will never forget that. I can close my eyes and see it. So, if I never reach that level of physical ability again, it's no big loss. Because I will never forget it. Close my eyes! And wee! I'm off! :)

    I I lost one of my children, it would kill me. I don't know how you recover from something like that.
    For myself, it would the loss of my mind, my ability to think. My Dad had Alzheimer's Disease and it was horrible to watch him just fade away. As long as I had my mind/brain intact, I think I could deal with physical disability. I'd have to.

    Just don't know, thoughts of either mind or body are awful. Guess what happens, happens and I'll deal with whatever as need be.

    I have a missing sibling that was never found and considered murdered. The not knowing is a huge loss.

    Thank you. I didn't say that to draw empathy but was expressing how anyone who has lost someone in their life without knowing where they are or what happened is a daily struggle and not just for me. This especially holds true for those lost in war and were never recovered like my wife's cousin and countless others.

    Obviously I always want to preserve and keep my mind in tact. That is key to living a full life. But, I think being locked in a body that was totally useless and still have mental abilities might even be worse. Some disabilities are certainly doable...but, total lack of mobility, speech, and any ability to communicate would perhaps be the worst of all. You'd be locked inside your brain forever. THAT to me would be the absolute worst. I can't even fathom the level of terror and frustration. You have tapped into my biggest fear.

    Depends how disabled. The idea of having something like locked in syndrome. Everyone else has bumbling around and being unable to interact with them. If I was just in a wheelchair and had my faculties, I would be fine with that. If I didn't have my left hand I would be very upset.

    I watched my dad lose his mental faculties after a series of strokes and it was extremely hard for him. At the end he couldn't even remember who we were. I would never want to go through that.
