I got a friend in the states who is currently handicapped. Initially she was undergoing a big and difficult adjustments in her life. But with the help of her family and friends, she managed to live a normal life. And even though she's disabled, she still managed to earn a living with the use of her remaining functional body parts. She's good in cooking and so she cooks and bakes and earn from it. Good thing she also has Medicare part D plan to use to receive her benefits.
