    I'm 44 and live in Georgia.
    I've learned a lot from this board. I have an Undifferentiated Connective
    Tissue Disorder that is Lupus like.

    I've been in printing or advertising for 26 years. If you can find a shop
    willing to train you in estimating or customer service you could stay in the
    business. Having been a pressman, you have the base knowledge to move
    into either of these areas, as long as you also have some computer skills.
    Many times these jobs are not advertised, but filled through word of mouth.
    Look up printers in your area, and physically go to the shops and drop off your resume and fill out an application.
    A stint in customer service may lead to an opportunity in sales.
    On the flip side, if you can get into another business that is less stressful, go for it. Printing is full of "I need it yesterday" deadlines, as you know. We all feel better with less daily stress.
    Good luck
