I'm a stay home mom but i need a job.My kids are going to start school this year.So i want to work while there in school cause my boyfriend needs the help. Plus we can't afford it anymore.I have these disease in my eye that makes me have really blurry vision it's only in my left eye i cant afford to have this glass contacts for it so i can see but even with those glass contacts they really don't stay on they just pop right out And my right eye has it but not as bad.So i can wear regular contacts on my right side so i could see .But i can't afford to go see the eye doctor right now to get my right eye some contacts so i could see some.I didn't finish high school.

Hi, since u have a disAbility look for an ILC in ur area -- Independent Living Center. They can help u with all kinds of things pretaing to disAbility issues. Sometimes they r easy to find in the phone book, other areas it is not so simple. Have a hospital in ur area? See if they have a disAbility unit or someone who can help in ur quest. Have a Rehab hospital? These places can help u find an ILC in ur area. In some states the Dept of Rehab has all these addresses. In CA they r many many all over the state. Here in AZ there r 3. They can help u with a Ticket To Work, working at home, out of home jobs and so much more. The Blind groups should b able to help too --maybe give more help as there is more Federal help and laws to help those with vision problems. Whatever u do, try to work. No work = no Social Security. Work what ur life and disAbility allows. There is so much help out there but sometimes hard to find unless u find someone who just happens to know a little to send u on ur quest. Good hunting and God Bless

Well i live in a small town and there's really no babysitting jobs.And i don't know i haven't tried because i really don't want to be on disability.I mean I don't really want to depend on that cause it comes only like once a month,

Could you do babysitting? Would your eyesight effect you being able to take care of other peoples kids? It's an easy job. It doesn't pay the best but you could probably offer to babysit in the daytime.

Can you get on some form of disability payments since you can't work?
