    Turning a hobby into a home business is one job idea that's suitable for people with a chronic illness.

    It's one idea anyway,

    Thanks rob for your input and ideia, i would like to do something i like for sure, otherwise it will be boring and wont work for sure.
    Motivation is a big thing when you are sick, sounds like you have found your perfect job.
    I just want something to help out with bills, as cost of living has gone up
    I love your ideia, and i think you got to love what you are doing whatever industry it is.
    thank you so much for your input,
    much appreciated

    Thanks for your ideia, i think that is great, moving and getting exercise seems to help alot, pending on each individual...i find the biggest thing is motivation, but pets are a great motivation for sure.
    i have been searching but no luck yet...alot of online jobs are a scam
    but they reckon if it doesnt exist Create it !
    I think there is a need for jobs that are disability friendly...
    Any more ideias or suggested would be much appreciated.

    hope you are well x
