If you look hard enough, you will find plenty of situations where you can feel useless; whether you have a disability or not. The same formula applies if you want to be, if you want to feel useful. Yesterday, I could not organize pots and pans or mop the floor. However, I did pay bills, schedule a repairman, feed the dog and make a shopping list. My wife hasn't written a check to pay a bill in years. [She was shocked about our electric bill (ok, way too silly)]. The point is that I am putting my effort into finding out what I can do. I am trying to be useful. Being useful feels good.
