I have a lot of chronic illnesses, too many to even mention here without boring you to tears. But, suffice it to say that I am not able to work outside the home, I have seven specialists that I see regularly and I take over 10 prescription medications.
Being unable to work caused me to be very depressed. I was used to working hard. But finding something that I was able to do that didn’t make me feel sicker was very difficult. Paid blogging has been the answer for me though. I can work when I am able. If I am too sick, I just don’t work. I can set my own hours. I can write about what I enjoy. And I can earn money!
