July 10, 2009, Newsletter Issue #10: How Can You Survive If You Can't Work?

Tip of the Week

Although you may wonder how you will make it, paying for your home, utilities, food, and
sanity, you must trust that there are ways. Sometimes the stress alone of being in so much pain
or your inability to be a useful part of your family and community overcomes you, you have to go on.
Trust in your Higher Power, talk to people who really do care about you, a counselor, or a minister.
Check at your local United Way office. They can give you valuable resources to contact
that will provide links to where you can get free or low cost food, & help with your bills.
Contact the Department of Human Services or welfare, though you might cringe at the thought,

If you cannot continue work, that is the test. If you CAN work, then that will be your challenge
with Social Security Disability, and they will expect you to find any way you can to support yourself;
but if you cannot work, or are advised by your doctor NOT to work, because working will worsen your
condition, then you have no recourse but to contact these resources that are there to assist you
in circumstances such as this.
