Okay, now that I'm feeling loose and jazzy fresh, I feel relaxed and up to asking this question. You guys have any ideas for me for what a girl like me can do with her life? And by that I mean: I've been out on workers comp for a year now. It's exhausting, and I'm so so so impoverished it's frightening. If I have to go back to work, what are work options that someone like me could do?
My background is baking/pastry arts—but I can't do that anymore. What I have on my resume is baking, barista-ing, customer service. I have no office experience unless you count answering phones in college at a restaurant.
My limitations are these: I have to be able to be on my painkillers-so I'm not the sharpest all the time. I'm very laid back in my daily life thanks to the power of opiates, but my brain is a little fuzzy (haha let's not forget that they are combined with a seizure med which gives me the dumbz). I have to be able to sit in a cushioned seat—hard surface on my back is incredibly painful. I can't sit for more than a couple hours. I can't stand for longer than say...twenty minutes. I can't do very much walking, and no climbing a lot of stairs. I can't carry stuff. I can't work full time hours.
So within those perimeters, what are jobs I can do? Does such a thing exist?
A lot of people speak in vague terms "Oh get an office job" etc...and they don't seem to realize that rarely, if ever, is a job going to take on a person with entry-level credentials and give them numerous accommodations. I would love a magic job! But I am being super serials right now.
So, O Great Hivemind! Hast thou any ideas for this poor fool over here?
