I saw Michael J. Fox interviewed by Ellen and he said he would not avoid having Parkinson if he had the choice.

I looked this up online and found he had said it too in the magazine Rolling Stones:

I think this is a powerful message for us survivors, to think that abuse, as bad as we know it is, perhaps has given us a chance to become better people than we would be have we not experienced it.

Michael in the Ellen show mentioned that he had a big ego. For me similarly the experience of abuse has been humbling.

If he can reach that conclusion suffering from a disease that is so harsh, perhaps we can get inspiration from him and work for a better place for others, advocating for eradication of abuse through the means that make more sense to us, such as supporting MaleSurvivor, or speaking out, or helping one another. Michael has raised over $300 million for research. On my part, I wish to promote the adoption of mandatory child-abuse reporting statutes in those countries where this type of statute does not exist.

Maybe for some, but not for me. Nothing that happened in my childhood made me a better or stronger person. Only the opposite. I know there are those here who feel differently though. Peace,

This is probably true in my case.
