GeneralGosh these remote gigs are looking tempting Pin

So my particular flavor of crazy has made me into a shutin over the past couple of years - i am too paranoid to deal with other people on a regular basis outside by spouse. Being schizoaffective requires me to develop some insular hobbies.

It has made employment challenging. Well that, and the fact that I can't control when i daydream and my short term memory is shot meaning i need email or i won't remember we even spoke.

So I've had time to fill, and been hoping I could find something I could do to get me working more and I see ads for a lot of remote gigs.

Trouble is I've tried that before and it's really challenging because being in a separate physical space puts me in "work mode" and I don't have a spare room to make an office out of.

And getting out of the house anyway most days isn't happening as long as my agoraphobia is what it is.

But at least I can still code. I just need to get clever if I want to do enough of it to fill up my days like it used to.

Either that or i need to take on a lot more hobbies. I'm still trying to learn to deal with all this business of being mad. It doesn't come with a manual. It really should. "The hatter's guide to madness" or something. That would be nice.
