Even though you have illness, you would want to have some sense of fulfillment, to have income and be able to interact as part of society. But the regular jobs are sometimes too stressful and it is difficult for people with these illnesses. Do you know of other alternatives?

You can search it in the net, I don't know what could be the best job. Maybe in the pet shop, or animal cafe, or veterinary.

When reading your reply, I thought of these furry, adorable dogs. And yes I've tried googling, haven't found anything that feels perfect. But I'll keep digging. Thanks.

@yoalldudes Maybe I spoke too soon because I don't think we have that much animal cafe over here.

I think any work at home job would be good. Freelance writing, surveys, blogs, etc. You are not going to get wealthy quick, but it's something.

I realized that surveys pay well. I'm amused they are willing to pay 3 dollars for a few minutes of answering questions and giving opinions.

@yoalldudes The work may seem monotonous, but if you really need something, anything, surveys are good.

Online jobs for sure but it all depends is your country popular and, if you have an experience, which everyone needs and noone offers or believe you can make it. We all needed experience, as I recall.

In Italy there are "protected" jobs for disabled people like me. But I am registered since 2008 (11 years!), at the moment, nothing available for me! This is Italy!

That might be taxing to the body. Sooner I will get depressed from the monotony of it.

@skysnap That is a fresh way of looking at it. Too much pressure is what destroys the joy from working.

My worry is I feel ashamed announcing to the world I have these illnesses. But I think it is a good idea. I will have to think of a creative way to do it. And partly I am doing that here, telling fellow myLotters my illness.

Each person is different and what I might like might not be what another might like. I am not able to handle phones under any situation. By the third ring, I am ready to break it. While others could work in a call center with no issues.

I would think that jobs that require light physical work that does not require a the learning of new material on a regular basis and not a lot of forced interaction with others might work out well. I am thinking of assembly work of some kind that requires repetition, but also offers satisfaction.

It depends on your preference. Like when you love music you can be a disc jockey in FM station.
