  • healthy by far.

    my youngest has a seizure disorder, that I wish would go away so we could stop the meds and the seizing.

    but she's a happy kid despite her disorder.

  • Healthy...you can always be happy while you are healthy but it's harder to be happy if you are not healthy.

  • I think being happy is part of being healthy. Being healthy is not just a physical state. It is a physical, mental and spiritual state as well.

  • Happy, as one is not truly Healthy if they are not also Happy. Mental health is just as important as physical health.

  • (op) Wow, seems unanimous so far. Totally just had this thought pop into my mind earlier and I still haven't decided. I mean, you can be happy even if you aren't healthy, but can you be healthy if you are unhappy? I want my son to be healthy, but I want him to be happy regardless of health....so I decided to open up the floor. Thanks for the responses!
