Is there ever a “right time” to begin something new with a chronic illness?
Hello all! I have a question: Is there ever a “right time” to begin something new? I’m in recovery from depression and am doing very well. It’s been a long, hard battle coupled with several autoimmune diseases. Mentally, I’m doing great, and physically, I am holding steady. I’ve been on disability for a little over two years now and am considering accepting a job helping coordinate care for very ill children. It would be a job that I would feel extremely passionate about, but I worry about my disability. It is full time and is described as being very busy, but has a supportive staff to help. It’s also a sit down job, so I wouldn’t have to worry about physical stamina as much. I just worry that it will be too much or I’ll find myself unable to do it someday and I worry. What are your thoughts? #Disability #careerchange #TooSoon ?
