At my MIL’s for tea the other night, and my daughter asked us all a random question:
Would you rather lose an arm or a leg?
As soon as she said it, she was so upset with herself and felt it was a terrible thing to ask, given the circumstances.
I have right sided hemiparesis, although these days my arm and hand are almost totally useless.
I told her, from my point of view, I’d rather lose a leg. I could use a wheelchair, and I’d still be able to type, hold a book, cut things up, open jars.....on and on the list goes. I feel I’d be more independent.
Which would you rather lose?
Anyone, please, feel free to answer. I’m also very interested to know what other hemi people have to say in regards to this.
