It is a common misconception that if is a physical disabilty and need you someone to help you then its best to stay home, or have a friend help you out. However, anyone who is a legal adult can move out and live independently with the proper resources. Google Independent Living or contact a disability resource centre in your area. There are a lot of options, including government assistance, personal care attendants, bursaries for school and lots more.
