I hate that platitude. About 3 years ago I had CVA. Heard that bullshit so many times I started to respond with " Yes the reason was an artery in my brain had a weak spot in the wall which formed an aneurysm which then ruptured and isn't unfortunate for all and sundry that my personality wasn't affected and I'm still a grouchy SOB!!", said with steady increase in volume and speed. It worked.
