Many people with a disability are able to work until retirement age, others find that their chronic illness or disability is so severe that they can no longer do their job or perhaps not work at all. In a society that values individuals by what they do, how do you face having to give up your job, perhaps one you really love, or worse being let go because your disability gets in the way of your ability to perform your essential work duties?
In this section, we address the physical and emotional effects of losing your ability to work due to chronic illness or disability. We understand what you are going through because we have faced that situation ourselves and know that it is not the end of the world. We hope that the tips and strategies we share will help you to see this time as a new beginning.
"There are two ways of meeting difficulties: you alter the difficulties, or you alter yourself to meet them."
