My Second Job
Yes, I have a disability that ended my career as a Teacher.
Yes, I get a little disability benefit each month.
No, I don't have my teacher's pension early - I decided to leave it where it was, building up, and manage.
Yes, the title is 'Second Job', which would infer I also have a 'First Job'.
My disability means I cannot do what is thought of as a 'usual' job. I have epilepsy following a head injury, and seizures happen at any time, without warning.
This does not mean I can't try to work at something.
My first job is as a tutor.
I don't have a set number of hours each week.
My second job is as a seamstress.
I take alteration commissions.
Every penny I earn goes into our savings.
I am incredibly happy being able to work at all, and work from home.
