  • it may be that you can still pursue your passion, you may just need accommodations. Start with your local dept of vocational rehabilitation. While you are waiting to get seen you can go to JAN.org. (job accommodation network) it has tons of resources and possible accommodations. Onetonline is also a good website, not only can you do interest tests and look at what the you might want to do. It also has a lot of links to websites that deal with working and disabilities.
  • Hi. My friend has a similar education. She worked as a private chef for a nice quiet couple. It was still her passion but she could work at her own pace, sit to prepare when she needed to etc. It was far less taxing than working on a line. She went on to be a career advisor at a culinary school. It's good to think about all the different ways you can use your talents. Her husband is also a chef & he works as an account manager...his job involves some travel. I'm not sure I could do that. He works from home a lot & no one knows if you're laying on the sofa with a heating pad & a pillow between your legs when you're doing that!

  • You might not be up to a fulltime shift at working to produce pastries and bake. But I bet you can develop your own stuff and write recipes and other similar things. Publishing a book is not as hard as you might think today. I self-published a science fiction novel and have sold over 1,500 copies without even trying to market it. There are many famous authors that did worse than me on their first book.

    If you market your material, you may get better known and be able to command a better price for your work. The best part, is you get paid to play in the kitchen and everything you bake is tax deductible.

    You can always find a way to follow your passion, you may just have to be a bit creative.
