Decisions, decisions…

So the daily prompt would like to know if you could create a painless, inexpensive cure for a single ailment, what would you cure and why?

This is a tricky one…do I do the selfish to my family approach and say cancer…for the reason right now that it would mean that my auntie will stick around 20 or so years more as I mentioned in this post yesterday?

Or do I do the selfish to myself only approach and say arthritis…as it is a serious pain in the butt…actually foot and ankle and I’m over the daily swelling that is involved with it?

It’s a debate that I’m not sure which side to choose!!!

Sure the cancer option would save the lives of a lot of people and it is painless that’s great, but whilst arthritis generally won’t kill you, it is also something that won’t go away and won’t be cured and won’t go into remission, it will however fluctuate greatly.

So for right now the jury is out.

    I can understand the desire to choose arthritis as it can be quite painful and affect your grip.

      My arthritis is in my ankle in a few spots and causes daily swelling, which I’m used to, but can also mean no movement whatsoever and can lead the a lot of pain in the cold unfortunately.
