Ok so I was diagnosed in May. Well I have recently went back to work. I tried working at the office job, pretty good pay full time. Well I had a hell of a time. Im starting to find it harder for me to work more than 4-5 hours in a day. I get really tierd and weak. Not to mention the off and on D I get. I am curious if anyone has any ideas on extra ways to make money. I dunno, I mean I only have about 400$ in bills a month, so I dont have to be a millionaire or anything. but xmas is coming up and I really wanna buy my family some gifts. UGHHH I hate this! Not the mention the fact that I dont have any insurance or anything if I need to go to the doc. I need help, ideas, anything! I live in Iowa, all they have that I know of is something called Iowa Cares, which is taking me FOREVER to get. I just wish I had my medical card back, just because I turned 21 its no good no more, pshhh! confused

Have you thought about house-sitting, animal-sitting or baby sitting?   None of those things may appeal to you, but it's an idea.
Also, I've known some people who get paid by the political parties to make phone calls soliciting support for candidates, or for ballot issues.  
Phone solicitation of all kinds is rampant these days - you may be able to hook up with some company that will pay you for sitting around your house making phone calls.
My family has stuffed advertisement bags at home before.  It's simple and we were paid some nominal amount per ad package. I don't remember what - like 10 cents a bag or something - but it would be an extra $20 to $40 bucks a week. 
The best gifts I've ever received were hand-made gifts, not purchased ones. I hope you find something and have a great Xmas!

You can make some extra money from taking surveys online.
Just need a computer and internet access, even dial up internet access is fine.

use, and type in surveys.

Avoid the ones that ask you to send money for anything.

I deleted your post where you offered to sell an unopened copy of a documentary. Healing Well does not allow advertising by anyone and offering to sell your own belongings here constitutes advertising. I suggest you sell it on Ebay.
