How can we all help?

Does anyone have any thoughts about overcoming the employment barriers for those who haven’t been as blessed as I to have found work and a hobby that could lead to work?

About lifeofthedifferentlyabled

Laura Forde founded her blog through my eyes: my life with cerebral palsy in December 2009 out of a great need she had, realizing that there was a vast gap in firsthand accounts of what life was like living with Cerebral Palsy: she knew then that the only way to see this reflected online was to create the change herself and thus this blog was born Laura was born four months premature, weighing a mere one pound three ounces and given ten percent odds for survival. She was diagnosed with cerebral palsy at the age of three. After graduating from college, she continued writing and doing what she loves to do most; speaking to groups about her life experiences and sharing what she has learned from her journey. Her blog lifeofthedifferentlyabled was created after discovering that the online community lacked the voice of people in her situation. In its first year, the site saw over 20,000 hits from all over the world. Her readers are from all walks of life; some with disabilities, parents of children, professionals, and others who seek to gain a better understanding of the world of the differently abled.

  1. I looked for a job for several years without any luck. During this time I slowly began to realize that all the cutting back on spending I was having to do to make ends meet was showing me a life that I’m actually happier with. I have found that I really don’t need all those ‘things’.

    With that said however, I do believe all people need a hobby. For people who have physical limitations, this can be frustrating. I’ll have to think on this awhile.
