Welcome to 2017!

I can't work! My backs too sore, my belts too tight, my booty shakes from the left to the right! From the left... to the right! From the left, to the right, to the left, to the right! Haha (that is part of a camp song)

Living with disabilities provides many challenges and emotional pain. Despite reminding myself every day that I am still valuable, those moments creep in and the little voices in my head fill me with doubt... am I a burden?

Well tell those voices to go take a nap!

I am not a burden. You are not a burden. We are just 'delightful weirdos' with eccentric bodies. Our bodies don't always function properly, but we don't give up!

But... wouldn't it be nice if we could bring in a little extra income? I mean, 2017 is going to be The BEST Year yet, right??

So, let's make some cash-o-la!

Throughout the years of being ill I have compiled a list of ideas for us that can't physically do the typical 9 to 5. So, check it out and let me know what you think! Also, if you have any additional ideas, please do comment below!

Also, if you haven't applied yet, try applying for Disability. I know it isn't right, but not all disabilities "qualify". But check it out and apply! (Know that the majority of people that apply for disability are denied on the first attempt. In fact, I was denied back when I first applied. You must appeal there decision and keep trying. I did receive disability after appealing their decision and applying again.)

Depending on your level of Physical ability, consider one of these:
