Deformed heart or deformed arm?

Would you rather be born with a deformed heart or a deformed arm? Here's the conditions:

Heart: You'll have to undergo several surgeries in your life, and take several months to recover from each one. You will miss large parts of some school years. You may have trouble keeping friends because you are away from school so much. You may or may not get home schooled. You may not be able to engage in strenous physical activity ever, and may have to carefully watch your diet. You may or may not die young.

Arm: People will look at you funny. You may or may not make many friends. You may be suspicious that your mother was doing drugs during pregnancy. You'll probably feel uncomfortable on hot days when you're wearing short sleeves, especially in early spring after being used to having it covered while it was cold outside. When it is exposed you'll be intensely aware that it is exposed. People may or may not make fun of you during school. You'll always wonder if people don't like you because of your personality or because your arm creeps them out. Your arm has somewhat reduced use compared to your other one.

I'd take the arm.

People can love a cripple. Nothing to love if you're heart bursts.



Should've asked missing arm or a leg.

yeah, but he's saying it can still work - at a minimal level though.

and im not sure... i mean, missing all that school and friends and stuff would suck. but imagine the pity :drool:
then again, heart problems will be with you a long time.

its kinda easier to get a new arm than a new heart - if you wanted.

Veeery interesting comments.

Let me tell you though, I haven't heard one word of sympathy or pity about it in my life. No one finds it endearing either.

It is easier, by comparison only, to live with a deformed arm instead of a deformed heart (medically speaking, of course). Most people with what society calls deformities don't want pity or even sympathy...they want understanding and acceptance. Society emphasizes looks over intelligence and as such, people with "deformities" aren't seen as being whole people (true, they may not be anatomically complete, but that doesn't make them any less of a person). If I thought that by having a "deformed" arm, that I could change society's perception of the "deformed", I'd gladly put up with it.

Sometimes you crack me up man! You are probably just as sick as me.

Wicked sick!
 
A deformed arm really isn't as big of a deal as people seem to think it would be. Perhaps in grade school, but beyond that its not much of a problem.

My father has a deformed right arm, and still manages to do everything just as well as anyone else. It's underdeveloped, and smaller as a result of less use, with a deformed hand as well, but he does fine. He kicks my butt at golf, is an accomplished fisherman (both fly and spincasting), and is so capable with it that my mother and I both commonly forget that he's got the handicap.

The only thing about it that really makes you conscious of it is that he shakes with his left hand. My friends commonly reach out to shake his hand and are embarassed when he reaches with his left hand because they've forgotten. When they say something to me about it later, I tell them that its a testament to how able he is--you'd never know he had the problem if you didn't physically see it.

What about when he meets a new person?
