“The Struggle of Job Hunting With Chronic Illness”
The Struggle of Job Hunting With Chronic Illness
I’ve talked previously here on The Mighty about not feeling “sick enough” to really be sick. I’m also not sick enough to qualify for most kinds of benefits meant to ease the financial and other strains of life with chronic illness and disabilities. So I still need income to pay bills and all of that other fun adult stuff. I work as a freelancer and on a contract basis for some clients, but it’s not enough to get by — which is where a “real job” comes into play.
