I am on an AF/VA pension (Gulf War1) and am so far still able to work, although I moved from AZ to ID 5 yrs ago for med & personal reasons. I have sole, personal, legal custody of my now almost 10 yr old grandson (due to death of mom & drug use of dad, my son) - I have had him since he was 2 wks old.
After an aortic-valve replacement & a Whipple procedure (05 & 06), I developed Type 1 Diabetes after treatment for a sinus infection (developing C-Diff and my pancreas just went on permanent vacation (early 13).
I want to work, just not at all-consuming/ can I please take over jobs like I had in the past (go in as dispatcher & 6 mos. later I'm Project Manager/or go in as AP & 1yr later I'm CFO) Please, please don't think I'm bragging, I just want a job where I can go in, say HI, do my job, maybe have a little after-work socializing & go home, but am constantly being told I'm 'over-qualified'. (Is that the new 'you're too old?')
I have a grandson to support, and we are on 2 totally different diets. He has ADHD Combined Type/Meth-induced & I am type 1, but I am on a fixed income and because I have worked so hard to main-stream him, he doesn't qualify for SSI, but he is underweight because of meds, and I have DT1. When I buy food, I buy for him first, so my diet usually suffers.
How can I resolve this?
