Can you say that you will not be hit by a bus, get cancer, ect ? Would you not get married because one of these "might" happen ? We are all damaged good in one way or another.

People have been in TCA's since the 1950's, we are coming up on 50 years. I've been on AD's since 1985, still doing fine. Many do the same, and generally do not show up on this list. For me, once I was stable for several years I realized (and was told) the outlook was very good and there was no reason to assume I would not continue to do well.
