The answer is: infinity.
Yep. Four is 2+2, 3+1, 1389-1385, 500/125, and so on. There is an infinite number of possible answers because “how much is 4” is the wrong question. Wrong questions sometimes get right answers, but they more often do not.
Before I get too miserable about not finding the answers to my questions, I need to be sure I am asking the right questions. What is my life expectancy with this diagnosis will elicit one answer, how long will I be able to continue leading the active life I lead now might elicit a different answer, and how long will I be able to perform self-care and enjoy being with my family, could quite possibly elicit yet another.
I don’t have anything much to add, actually. I’ve just been thinking about questions and answers, and not necessarily related to health.
