i want to work with people suffering from mental ill health, i think i ca do it but i will need some advice about benefits and things, i need a better off calculation, i was hoping that there may be a safety net incase anything went wrong but the theory of it is that if i love doing my job enough then i wont be worried about the financial downs just the gains, i’ll try and weigh up the pros and cons.
pros - doing a job that i love, helping others, exercise, learning, better use of my time, feelings of accomplishment, possible mortgage opportunities, i might meet a partner. i can save as much as i want, more normal
cons - less time at my clubhouse, less money, possible anxiety problems, if things go wrong, less time caring for my mum. less time to myself, more stress.
its basic but it is a very hard decision that i will have to weigh up very carefully,
i don’t seem to be able to find permitted hours work that i like, i’ll keep looking but i’m not ruling out part time work if its good enough, i just need more information to make an informed decision.
