Reblogged from sfsoulspa. Sometimes we have to go through hard times to really appreciate what we have. Also it can happen that an unpleasant symptom can have a positive outcome, e.g. I suffer from ear problems which sometimes make me dizzy. This helped me write a scene in my novel in which the protagonist suffers a similiar episode (not brought on by mundane ear problems), you may want to read the book to find out what, when it is published.
