Does Anyone Work From Home?

So here's the deal... We need daycare, but can't afford it.  And right now, we can't afford for me not to be working...  And this is really the last week I'll actually have people able to watch my kiddo.  I cannot work full time cause of scheduling conflicts with my hubby, and SOOOOO my only option is basically to work from home... But I don't want to be scammed, so anyone know of good reliable companies that provide Work At Home jobs?

Too bad we can't Internet babysit! We could pass the baby around and all get our baby fix!

I know people who work from home, but they have their own businesses selling or doing book keeping/ medical billing. Not something you could start next week.

I don't know what hours hub works but could you at least be a waitress or work the overnight shift at Walmart until you can arrange something better? Our Walmarts always need overnight workers.

Hahaha internet babysitting... now THAT would solve ALL my problems lol!  I guess the thing I could do is try and find someone else who works and we could do a co-op daycare or something... Fortunately I work a somewhat flexible schedule right now, but its during the day when hubby works no matter how I work it.  I think we might just have hubby switch group homes because the one he's at now is just a pain in the arse schedule wise.  (He's also 'looking' for a new job, though not hard enough IMO)

As for waitressing, I suppose now that I'm... how old am I?  I clean forgot!  Anyway, I'm over 21 now, so I guess I could.  (Yeah you can't serve unless you are 21 or older in Utah.)  But Walmart I don't think I could manage, especially not grave shifts.  (Long story as to why... come to think of it, I'd probably have trouble waitressing... gah!)

One of the things that most companies require for employees who work from home is a home office. It has to be where the computer is, sometimes have a phone, and have a door. They expect their employees to work without interruption, just as they would if they actually came into a work office, so you would likely have to alternate your schedule with your husband's, working while he is home. Some companies also simply set up schedules, just as if it were a real office.

 

I know you've said that doing traditional college isn't for you, but maybe you could consider a technical college. There isn't any of that writing and stuff, just learn things, test for them and get out. Once you've done that, maybe finding something at home for medical stuff would be easier and employers are less likely to have demands on the time of day you work, and more likely to be interested only in the amount of hours you work.

 

Unless you work for yourself, working from home is not what some people think it is or spread rumors it is. And working for yourself is not exactly sunshine and roses.

just drop the kid here - everybody else does!  lolz!  and don't pay me - nobody else does!  :D  

 

i watch (my grandson, my neice & nephew, the kid next-door, etc...) the kids so their parents can work.  i always hope they're getting ahead, then i hear they do stupid crap with their $$ and wonder what i'm doing this for.......

 

you can probably do some sort of customer service from home - i toyed with the idea for a minute - you need to have a dedicated space, though, and you may not be able to take a break when you need to tend to your sweet baboo.  i was brokering freight from the house but it was too stressful - i wasn't eating.

I used to work from home.  I worked for HP on a network management contract.  Some companies use work from home employees for their help desk support.  My job was long hours even tho it was at home.  A help desk job / customer support position would most likely be fixed hours instead, which is probably better for you.

Before I opened my shop I used to give guitar lessons out of my home. Made a darned good living too.

 

Mom used to make and decorate wedding cakes before she got sick. Then she started making afgans and sweaters and baby clothes. She made a lot of money once she got going.

 

I have a friend who makes jewelry and sells it on consignment at a local jewelry store.

 

So, what are your talents? It takes a while to build up clientele, but if you can make something at home and sell it, eventually you might be able to make enough money to live on. Are you good at making gluten-free goodies? :D

I used to work from home a few years ago, but stopped because I had 3 very young kids and I was losing my mind! I'm going to be taking a few daycare kids now that 2 of my 3 are going to be in school. I start September 4th... I'm nervous, but excited!

Bartfull - I think you are a psychic or something!  I don't openly advertise that I bake!  And yet you figured me out! Hahahaha

 

notme! - sure thing!  Free daycare ftw!  (Kidding.  Don't have any idea where you are!)

 

Meanwhile, I think we've come to a conclusion.  Hubby's gonna find a second job and I'll STAY at home.

Well, I've never been called psychic although a few people have called me psych-O. :blink:  :lol:

 

How about you send me some of those baked goodies and I'll tell you if I think you can make money selling them? :)

No soy and no corn. Oh, and I'm off of dairy and sugar right now too. Let's see, what does that leave? Not MUCH!! Guess I'll have to wait a while until I get some of these things back. :angry:

Hmmm only thing that complicates my cooking is the sugar.  *thinks*  What do you use as a replacement?

(I use mostly rice flour in my cooking hence the reason why I say no soy and no corn isn't a problem lol)

 

Edit: Carob doesn't bother you does it?  (I use carob as a chocolate replacement since I try to avoid chocolate.  Sometimes I can't resist though.)

Stevia for a sweetener? I don't know about carob - haven't tried it. Chocolate seems to bother me though. I still think salicylates are bothering me so carob is probably out. (I had a Lara bar yesterday, the one with nothing in it but cashews and dates. Had a bad reaction and I know cashews don't bother me so it must have been the dates. The sals forum lists dried fruit as very high in sals. It's a shame because it was good.)

Okay, well I've got other recipes I can make without carob and probably without salicylates.

 

And oh yeah!  Forgot about Stevia!

 

*grin* I'm up for this challenge... it will be fun!

      I think, if all this is caused by glutening, it could be that it takes a while to work its way out of your system. I should explain about what I said about organic broccoli.   I don't have a problem with organic food,  in fact, I buy organic milk and carrots all the time, but I don't want to try organic broccoli in case it is the broccoli that is the problem, not the insecticide.    I meant to ask, are you a coeliac or is it non-coeliac gluten intolerance that you have?   I wonder what sort of support you get in Australia for these conditions once diagnosed?   Here in the UK I think the understanding that if new gastro symptoms have lasted for more than six weeks it needs to be investigated.   I have found this very helpful advice because I do get odd twinges of pain and sometimes changes but they rarely last more than three weeks.   If they do persist I mention it to my gastroenteroligist and he follows it up.  I recently had a sigmoidoscopy for left sided pain and they found nothing.  Turns out it was to do with lactose intolerance, but I always imagine the worse!  
    • Will my doctor test me? So many symptoms...
      Welcome, @iwillmoveamountain! Of course you are not wrong to pursue getting testing for celiac. My advice is to drop that doctor and find a new one, preferably one who is celiac savvy, and who will listen to you and test you for the disease.  
    • Will my doctor test me? So many symptoms...
      Hi! I was hoping some of you might be able to tell me if my symptoms seem like good reason to be tested for celiac disease... I actually asked my doctor to test me (years ago) and she told me she would not test me because the test is expensive... However, I am now desperate to figure out how to manage my health issues and am willing to find a doctor that WILL test me if my symptoms seem to point to celiac...Here they are:
      I have been diagnosed with all of the following over the last 12 years (I am 22 years old, and have always been a healthy weight/slightly underweight, and quite active):
      Irritable Bowel Syndrome Fibromyalgia Anorexia (started when I was 10, I have been mostly recovered since I was 14) Depression Anxiety Panic Attacks Horrible mood swings (from suicidal to totally fine in a matter of minutes)
        Chronic constipation and bloating Acne   HOWEVER, no one in my family has been diagnosed with celiac....am I wrong to think I have it??

      Yes, I was surprised about the MSG in broccoli as well. I just had a quick look now as I couldn't remember where I had read it but some mushrooms have it to. A Google search will bring up a few things. I always just thought MSG was an artificial food enhancer!! Insecticides are still a big possibility though. Why do you not want to try organic? We buy organic when we can and fruits and veges that are in season are usually the best and cheapest.  Thank you for the link, Cristiana. Very helpful. I have an appointment with my Naturopath in a couple of weeks and going to have a blood test done before that. She is excellent. Very knowledgeable and loves her work. Until then I'm not taking any supplements. I generally eat pretty well anyway so we'll see what she says. In the past I have used B12 injections (aka Neo Cytamen) which I found much better and safer than taken orally and very cheap. The energy boost was very noticeable. I didn't know it helped with anxiety though. She has also had me on Magnesium, Probiotics and Vitamin D3 and I also make my own Liver Tonic (Milk Thistle, Dandelion Root Powder, L-Glutamine, Taurine and Choline Bitartrate) which I use from time to time for a quick detox. Too much of anything can be bad but I think iron can be not real good in large amounts. Deficiencies can be related to gut health and/or competing for absorbtion with something else you may be taking I found. I'm no expert though but just a few things I've picked up during research. My normal GP told me to just eat some more red meat but I want to speak to my Naturopath first before supplementing. Her knowledge on nutrition is a bit more up-to-date.  I was just sitting there at lunch today after feeling great all morning and had a "weird feeling" come over me. Just a not quite right feeling. Very hard to describe and nausea seems to have returned to. It's funny that as I get older any little thing I get I seem to think it's life threatening even though all the tests I get back say I'm in good health. I guess that's part of that dread and doom and gloom feeling I mentioned earlier. Wish that would go away.  
    • Gluten and panic attacks
      There are great gluten-free pizza crusts out there, as well as good dairy free cheese. I find the key is to add good toppings, e.g. meats, carmelized onions, other veggies, white anchovies. Life goes on. Congrats. Hope the good feelings keep up.

      Hello! I am new to this Celiac website... Is there anyone out there with Celiac AND extensive food allergies? My allergies include shellfish, dairy, eggs, cantaloupe, kiwi, mango, nuts, oranges, red dye, and more I can't think of. I went to the allergist about a year ago to see why I wasn't feeling well, and once everything was eliminated, I still didn't feel well. We did more testing to find out I had celiac as well as allergies to cattle as well as rye grass (I live on a farm basically). This was back in January 2016. I recently had my endoscopy with the gastroenterologist a week ago. I have no idea what to do or what to eat... So fish and potatoes for me!

      Week 4 of the gluten challenge- wheat cereal every morning, regular bread every day, and wheat tortillas for my lunch wraps. Right now, body aches that seem exercise related (weight lifting and running), even though I am doing the same intensity of weight lifting and running I've always done.  Just a few more weeks until my blood test. Counting down the days.
