What about:'What doesn't kill you makes you either a victim or a survivor - your choice.'
I like D's take.
Me too. Very good.
DD I like. I also like Schlock Mercenary's take,"That which doesn't kill me, has made a tactical error".
"'What doesn't kill you makes you" is like:Oh, that's another of those irregular verbs, isn't it? I give confidential press briefings; you leak; he's been charged under Section 2a of the Official Secrets Act. or I have an independent mind, you are an eccentric, he is round the twist.
I think though, there's also other things other than experiences that 'what doesn't kill you'. I guess it's what makes it such an interesting piece. From the missus' POV, her disease doesn't make her stronger OR a victim. Much of what's in that note is relevant to her.
What doesn't kill you is a lousy shot.
