      I feel for you. I haven't experienced any trauma near to what you're saying though. As far as ways to make a living that don't involve welfare....well, it's infinite. If you're here on hubpages, there is one way. Write well and often with good intent and money will come in. Good luck to you.

      Very sorry to hear that you're going through this. Well, is there any option for you to work from home? If not, like the post above me stated, HP would be a great option for you to gain some income by writing good content. smile

      Welcome to HP! All the very best!

    Very few people can make a living just by writing only. It is not easy. You have to consider may be disability. it will be more than welfare and if you cannot work, what else you are supposed to do? When my poor husband had a stroke, I applied for disability for him right away. I knew he is not going to recover,it took me a year, shovelling paperwork between doctors, myself and Ontario Disability, but I managed to do that. You do not despair. Try everything you can!
