I have been off work for over a year now due to a chronic illness. I worked mostly in behavioral health. I have worked in a drug rehab, psychiatric hospital, and nursing home. I really enjoyed nursing, however, I do not believe that I will ever be able to return to it. It is too physically demanding for me. I am currently on disability. I was on a medical leave in summer of 2004. I returned to work part-time and after 3 months, I had to resign. I was hoping that someday I would be able to return, and perhaps I was just having a flare-up and would improve after time. However, after several hospitalizations, I came to the realizaton that I will probably never be able to return to nursing. My doctor has agreed with me. I am 48 and would like to find something that I could possibly do from home. I am on SS and on disability that I obtained from work. My insurance company is offering vocational rehab. I can return to school for some training. I believe that it would have to be a job that I could do from home. I would like to do something in the medical field, if possible. Any suggestions?
