What should I do now? I have no job, no child, no B.A., no debt, no mortgage, am female and am in my 40s. Help me see the possibilities! I have both no idea and every idea.

I'm open to almost anything. One answer is getting a B.A. somewhere and then an M.L.S. at San Jose, tho how to manage this and to pay rent without getting into horrendous debt is beyond my understanding.
In the last year I became happily aware that my formerly almost crippling psoriasis is fading. So I am no longer tied to medicine; I can work anywhere.
My professional background includes epidemiology (interviewing drug users about their lives re HIV and giving HIV results) and cataloging libraries, particularly law libraries. Without a degree, I can't find work in these fields now.
Help me figure out what to do now! I want to contribute, make a very modest living, and generally step up. Any ideas?
