How Hard is it To Live with Disabilities?

Posted by on Jun 7, 2015 in Social Security

Living is difficult enough as it is when you’re, by all technical definitions, a regular human being. Regular human being meaning, perhaps, that you have the normal cognitive processing power as well as control over your own body. Philosophical queries can discuss this subject matter in a more in-depth fashion but for all intents and purposes, a human being is just a person who has the capability to function day-to-day activities without personal hindrances, may they be physical or mental.

Some people, however, don’t always have that luxury of perceived normalcy. Some people are born disabled and some people are made disabled after an injury of some kind. Incidents that can cause such trauma can cause either permanent or temporary disability. Either way, this will have direct consequences upon the effectiveness of the person and cannot be expected to perform or cope in the same caliber as those who are not disabled.

Disabled people may learn to overcome their disabilities and end up being able to function admirably but these situations are such that are learned and honed for much longer than they should have been. Things like walking or writing can be monumentally huge things to learn for, say, a person who was not born with legs or suddenly had to have them amputated or some other reason. It is because of these added hindrances that have been brought on by circumstances that they did not ask for that they are owed Social Security benefits, in order to make their lives somewhat easier as well as give them ample more time and space to rediscover themselves, their strengths, and to live with their given disability.
