Is that helping you? You lost custody for a reason. Until you fix that reason, you will not regain custody, and sitting there getting upset isn't going to help you.

Sorry if this sounds harsh, but I've been living with disability in my family for 14 years now, and if we can do it, anyone can. It takes people willing to get off their asses and move forward, rather than wallowing in self pity and waiting for everyone to give them a free ride.

There are several resources for people with disability to gain employment. Get in contact with them and get moving on improving your lot.

then contact rehabilitation services in your area. Stop hiding behind 'disability'. My husband is fully disabled and still brings in his own little bit of cash from a small business that he started.

Stop making excuses and looking for a free ride. Its not getting your daughter back into your care any sooner, if anything its giving a great reason not to give her back to you.

Surely there's a support service in your area.
You really do need to tell us everything in your opening post so we know the whole story.
Even your case worker with CPS )or whatever they are where you are) should be able to tell you some contacts.

Any job will give you extra income!
Look on job websites or in the paper under the employment section. You need to go out and find a job to actually earn money.
ETA: You don't have your child at the moment so you aren't limited to the hours you work. Go and get a waitressing job or a job at McDonalds. Anything that will pay you money.

Just getting a job, and working it daily, will get you income. But, you actually have to GET A JOB. Asking online if anyone knows of a job that will give 'extra' income is kind of vague, don't you think?

For starters: McD's, BK, any fast food joint, any restaurant (although I'd go for one that pays a set hourly wage at or above minimum, rather than one for 2 bucks an hour 'plus tips'...

In other words, to earn money, one must actually do some physical work for it...
