Living with a disability can be difficult at the best of times. Disabilities come in all different variations, whether they cause pain, immobility, or even affect mental health. For many sufferers, invisible disabilities mean that they may not look unwell, but actually feel far from fit and healthy. As society becomes more aware and more accommodating of those with disabilities, it’s becoming easier for less abled people to experience a good quality of life. With more and more treatments becoming available and an increasing number of people learning more about, and understanding, a whole range of disabilities, those suffering from various conditions are able to take control of their lives and do more and more of the things that they enjoy.

Medical Marijuana

Since the legalization of marijuana use for medical purposes in a number of states in the U.S.A., many people affected by disabilities, chronic pain or even mental health problems have found a both legal and natural method of dealing with their symptoms and being able to cope with day to day life. With painkilling, relaxing and even sleep-inducing properties, those who previously suffered every day have been given a new lease of life with the legalization of this drug allowing them to use it to target various symptoms. If you have a disability or other condition which you think medical marijuana may be able to help you with, visit this marijuana finder to discover more.

Improved Homes

Gone are the days when disabled people had to struggle to get around in conventional homes or even make do by sleeping downstairs on the sofa or using a commode, for example. Today, government grants and aid have made it possible for home renovations to take place in order to make a property more accessible for a disabled person, whether this involves making a home more wheelchair-friendly or adding extra features which make it less of a painful experience for somebody with a disability to go about their day to day lives. Thanks to this, an increasing number of people suffering from a range of disabilities and conditions are able to live comfortably and with minimal struggles in their own home.

Using the Internet

In many cases, the internet has been an absolute godsend for those suffering with disabilities and other painful, debilitating conditions. Whereas just a few years ago disabled people would have had to struggle doing things such as going to the store for groceries, for example, the internet has made it possible for them to order their groceries online to be delivered to their home without even having to get out of their chair or bed. The internet has also made it easier for disabled people to communicate with health professionals, using services such as video call therapy or even online pharmacies to order prescription refills. The internet is also home to vast support networks for people suffering from all kinds of disabilities, providing support and friendship.

In 2016, living with a disability does not have to ruin your life. Thanks to technology, increased awareness and legislation, those with disabilities can experience a good quality of life.
