This is a good idea. I understand how you feel. Since I started getting brain lesions that the drs haven’t figured out yet for years, I have memory and learning problems that just get worse with time. So I don’t think I can work. I’ve tried since being disabled and I’ve failed. It sucks to be completely dependent on others. I totally get it.
Yeah, I agree that you do work by doing things around the house, but if you dont feel you can work in a job setting, and you feel you need to earn some money, maybe you could do some temp work for people you know.
My dad is retired but still mows lawns, for example. Cleaning houses or similar things, maybe even just for people you know, might be an option? Anything like that? Or maybe an at home business like Daze? Dog sitting? I don’t know, I’m just brainstorming.
I’m assuming that you have already tried for disability at some point?
Edit: PS, not trying to insult your education with these suggestions or anything, just trying to come up with some things you can do that wouldnt be too much pressure.
I would say, focus on what you can do, and don’t worry about the things that you can’t do. If you can be a stay at home wife, and that’s what you want to do, then do that. If you can work some, then work. Just don’t beat yourself up if you feel like you should be doing something that you are not. Just focus on where you are now, and what you are able to do now. I think you are a terrific housewife, and you embrace that role very well. So don’t sell yourself short as others are also saying. I’ve been a stay at home wife and mother since 2009 and love it. Sometimes I work part time, but not always. Because of COVID, there are alot more opportunities to work from home. So if you want to try something like that, you could. It just depends on your skills and what you’d like to do.
