work from home or would be on disability

Posted by Elise on 1/08/99 at 00:00 (003155)

If I didn't have a computer-based job that I can do from home, I would be unemployed at the moment, as I couldn't put my foot on the gas pedal for over 2 months.

I would love to figure out a computer job I could do at home. What do you do? Is it lucrative enough? I have kids in school but like to be around to help them. Waitressing is out now because of my pf. Any great ideas on jobs?

I have heard that are jobs that need people to do medical transcriber, if you have a computer,which can be done at home. You could check it out. Good luck.

I review the results of market research surveys and write the reports. I really like it because I learn something new every time I analyze a new set of data. Any kind of freelance/consulting writing job can be done from home as long as you have a computer. I have e-mail and fax support on mine so I can easily receive my assignments and send back the finished report. PF has actually helped me at work - Since I can't do much else, I work for a few hours Sat and Sun mornings, and I have been finishing all my projects early, so they increased my workload! (Needless to say, I long for my previous weekend routine of tennis and working out, but work has saved my sanity.)

If you have any specific questions about skills/qualifications, etc. I would be glad to help/

How did you get involved in this job? Where do you start? I would love to do a computer job at home. I am a night owl and could do a lot of it when my family was asleep. If you can, please e-mail me with more information about where I can research this type of job.
