It Couldn't Be Done By Edgar Albert Guest

Somebody said that it couldn't be done
    But he with a chuckle replied
That "maybe it couldn't," but he would be one
    Who wouldn't say so till he'd tried.
So he buckled right in with the trace of a grin
    On his face.  If he worried he hid it.
He started to sing as he tackled the thing
    That couldn't be done, and he did it!


How will you get organized to begin to deal with overwhelming disability?

What do you need to do?  Do you have overwhelming doctor and therapy appointments? 
Do you need to apply for assistance?  Do you need to fill out forms?

Take time to organize your goals and large priorities.

The next step is to divide each large project down into steps.

What will get the job done for each step.  Write a "to do" list with tasks rated by priority,
1,2,3, or A, B, C. 

Visit your high priorities every week and solve each one at a time. 

For instance, if you have to fill out many forms, what information will you need to collect? 
Make a list and where you can locate the information. 

Keep the information in folders and organize your folders whether on the computer
or in a box or drawer so you can find the files again.  You will need the information when
you have to revisit the issue each year. 

When you have everything you can collect, begin to fill out the forms, one section at a time.

Tackling each step, one at a time, you will reach your goal, and you will be able to say, "I did it!"

Learn to face that you may not know everything.  Learn how to ask for assistance. 

If it is a difficult process, repeat the steps back to the person you are asking.  Make sure you know what each step means.

Be sure that you are not assuming anything, that may cost you more in benefits.
