this is my personal opinion. the moral of this article is: if you can get better,you get less pain and feel more comfortable and happy. if not, death will come naturally and end suffering for this life. which ever way, it's still good.
i have been sicked for 4 years, went for 3 operations and still unwell. sometimes, i ask myself: "it's either I get better and live well, or die". we should just try our best to be well and let karma unfold. when a person dies, all suffering (for this life) also end. nothing on earth is permanent, whether it is happiness or sufferings. thank you for sharing this article.
