I don't know your education or work history, and without knowing that I would say a customer service job on the phone should fit the criteria you listed.
However, start thinking about
all the things you can do and want to do and do not give up on yourself.
I have been working non-stop since I was 14, I have never had the option of not working. My Mom is mentally and physically disabled and my father lived in a different state, was laid off most of my teenage years during the recession and always scraped by.
I had a horrible flare about
a year ago, I could not have gone on and worked like that, I would have had the surgery rather than try to even live like that, I probably would have bled to death and would not have had any option if I did not respond to meds.
What I am saying is that you can do it. It is good to earn your own money, try to think positive.
I am assuming you are covered by your parents insurance??? If so, realistically, you need to find a job to get your own bennies, how much longer will theirs cover you and most places you need to be there a few months before the bennies kick in. With the infusions so expensive you need to be able to already have a job.
I get home from work at 6:30 each night and go to bed at 8:30 during the week, I get about
9 to 10 hours of sleep a night and am still tired.
Go out there and show yourself and your parents what you can do! Rock it!
