Granted Im disabled, but frustrating as it is..I WANT to work. Vocational Rehabilitation listed me as 'not employable' last month, which devistated me.
I know its not realistic to think that being bedbound can yield any productive job opportunities. This kills me inside, because I am intelligent woman who's brain works, but her body does not. I feel worthless as a mom and person. I hate being on public assistance.
I hear on TV constantly about the stimulus and creating jobs, but for those like me, that seems like an unattainable dream. SS says I can do something up to a certain amount of hours, but docs say I cannot do even that. Even one day a week would make me feel productive.
I still mourn the life I used to have, when i worked full time and had all sorts of benefits and being fully financially contributing to society.
My family already drowned financially and I feel powerless to do anything about it.

What about being a web mistress? Like updating and revamping websites? I don't know how much it would pay, probably not much at first, but as word of mouth got around, you could do pretty well. What is your education and skill level / experience? I don't really think it matters what your disability is, considering you know how much and what type of work you can handle.
