Yes, this is a really sad case..
Even otherwise, disability is: not being able to do, at a given point, which others can.. even if temporarily. But just in the name of "Positive Thinking", should we deny, what is so clear and recurrent all our lives?
A little humility and lot of common practical sense- that is all it takes, to say- yes, it is a disability and society should do its bit, as much as I should do my bit about it...
