Default Toggle active state of text area with radio button

I have 5 radio buttons. A B C D E
B (if selected) needs to activate a text field of 25 chars
E (if selected) needs to activate a text field of 10 chars

if user selects B, then user can type in "happy"; user then changes mind and selects D. "happy" is erased and the textfield is disabled. user then changes mind again and selects B and this time types in "not so happy"; then user changes mind selects E and types in "whatever" (B is blanked and disabled). then user selects A and hits submit. (B and E should be blanked and disabled... form returns value A as submited.
