In disability studies, there is a language identity label for the non-disabled:

TAB (Temporarily Able Bodied, ie not disabled yet)

but there is no word for the temporarily disabled (those on crutches or with short-term illness). The implication is heartening (gives power to those with disabilities, who become the majority when you consider the meaning of TAB) but also gloomy (disability haunts you forever, cannot be overcome).
