Before my cancer diagnosis, I worked in the healthcare field and was well respected by co-workers, managers and patients alike. Since my brain surgery I have had more migraines, eustachian tube dysfunction (still need to rule out other possibilities like meniere's), potential diagnosis of lupus, balance issues, incredible fatigue and an increase in social anxiety.
Since my surgery I have left the medical field and became a nanny. With the balance problems, increased migraines, sound sensitivity, dizziness and general anxiety I am finding it difficult and taxing to even do this.
My ideal position would be to work from home so I don't have to worry about driving and listening to aggravating noises when my migraines or ear problems flare up. While I have been participating in surveys, watching videos, etc to bring a little extra income in, this isn't enough to sustain my financial obligations. Given my financial difficulties, I'd prefer to not have to go back to school or pay for further training, but if needed, I am open to that possibility.
