I have been in my current position for a year and a half. I took the job after being part of a corporate downsizing at my previous job. While I get paid well, I have been absolutely miserable in this job. I had been working to leave before my cancer diagnosis as I used to joke the job was killing me. Little did I know it was as high stress has been proven to aggravate cancer. I am currently on short term disability and am stressing about having to go back to this job. Is it feasible to make a career switch at this time? Do companies hire newly diagnosed people who might need some days off for treatment, etc...? I don't need to make the money I do now, and want to do something I would enjoy as I know that would help my health as opposed to going back to the high stress in my current position. I just don't know where to start.
