Resume Building and Writing,
Hi! I was diagnosed with Hodgkin's lymphoma two weeks after I graduated college. My plan prior to treatment was always to work whatever job paid the bills and then use whatever free time I had to pursue my dream of being a professional singer-songwriter. Now after two-ish years of treatment I'm NED and looking to move back to NYC to continue going after that dream, but I'm worried that I don't have the same physical energy as I used to and I won't be able to handle a full work week while also working on music outside of that. I'm also worried that any minimum wage job I could get would put me at greater risk for COVID. I'd love any advice on how to balance my creative pursuits, bills, and continued side effects from chemo (namely fatigue and being immunocompromised).
