Hi I'm awaiting a knee surgery and was just laid off in October. I am also caring for my daughter who has epilepsy and has suffered from an intractable migraine for A YEAR now...She can no longer attend public school and goes to an independent study facility once per week to get her homework packet. I will be going on unemployment after I've recovered from my surgery but I must work from home...Not sure how they handle a job search for telecommuting jobs. Also plan to file for SSI for her, not sure if I'll be eligible as I think we take in too much from just my husband's job alone. So I plan to look for many different baskets to put my eggs in - perhaps some transcription work from home as well as some writing jobs - I have a B.A. in English and have some skills with the pen (ok the computer in this case). Anyway just a quick shout out to say Hi to the other moms struggling here! Nice to meetcha!
