Are you a mom?

I am really not licking my current job, I am sick of going into peoples homes and being treated like a slave. I do home health care and it's just gotten to be more than I feel I am capable of emotionally. I find that I am not that great with working with people, I don't like having a boss and taking orders from people. I do need money though and have to have some kind of income. I recently have sold the rights to some short stories and poems, under a pen name due to the nature of the stories hehehe, and I have made a pretty good profit from that. Actually what I bring in from writing is actually more than what I bring home from doing the home heath care. I would love nothing more than to quit my job and focus on my writing full time. The issue here is that my mom says that it is not a stable job, I can't count on a pay check all the time, and that I need a real job and selling stories and poems is not a job its a hobby. The last pay I revived from selling my stuff was $500.00. I can get anywhere from 25 to 50 bucks per poem and about 100 to 150 for a story. Even If I only get 500 a month that is more than I make at my REAL job where I bring in 200 a month. So I don't know, should I listen to my mom and stay where I am miserable or focus full time attention on what I want to do?
