I am a schoolteacher who works with students diagnosed as having learning disabilities (I prefer to say Learning Differences). Last year the Lupus played havoc with my ability to perform well at work. It was the most frustrating year I've ever experienced--but gave me even more empathy for my students. I regularly forgot things, forgot names, misplaced paperwork, and missed appointments. Honestly, if I hadn't had to take off for neck surgery mid-year, I think I might have lost it. I am on medication now, but I'm still dreading this school year because I know stress wreaks havoc. I have a new principal this year, moved to a new campus, and we are picking up and moving to a brand new building mid-year to yet another campus. My teaching partner and good friend who helped keep me on track won't be with me this year. Now with my mom's illness thrown in the mix, not sure how things will go. Praying I can keep working because I love to teach and need the insurance. I am depending on God to put the stepping stones in place to get me through.

So what I have decided to do is take something I am good at buying clothes and trying to create a business out of it. I also work temp jobs at good pay with full time hours. I have found that temp jobs are more laid back with less stress and if I need to take off its a less chance they will tell me no. I don't know many peoples circumstances but this could be a start. If you have a talent that you can create a business from GO FOR IT!!!
