Hello, that is a scary thought, not knowing how you are going to support your family w/half the income. Believe me, I know. I did a few things. I did start a home business. I am not sure if the rules of this board allow me to name the business, so I am not going to until I go back and read the rules. But I did get signed up with one of them and I printed up flyers from ny own printer, as well as post cards. I ordered signs to be printed up online too. Then I hired some of the neighborhood teenagers to take the flyers and put them on the doors throughout the neighborhodds in our area. I gave each kid 10.00 to go out and pass outthe flyers and then each order that came in w/their initials on it, the kid got a 10% of the sale.I found a web designing co. that built me a web site and all my orders come over the web and thru the mail. I was able to get this all set up prior to my surgery and after the surgery I just checked my mail/email. Any orders that came in...I go to the website for the distributor and place the order to be sent directly to the client. I never have to leave the house to do it. Anyway, it seemed to help me.

Also, dont forget to call your credit card and loan companies and see if you signed up for their disability clause. You may be able to go a few months w/o making a payment. If your family is involved w/ a church etc. don't be shy to ask for help. My church gave us a gift certificate for the grocery store for the 1st 3 months after my surgery. Not to mention the prepared meals they brought over the first 3 wks. afterwards. You'll also be saving money on gas, I'd think. Look through your bills and see what expenses you may save by not going to work. If you buy lunch or your morning coffee and doughnut etc. you wont be doing that either.

I hope this has been helpful. If I am allowed to name the home business, I will come back and add that.

Hugs and prayers,

Lorie :angel:
