Good WFH jobs for someone with a health condition similar to Chronic Fatigue Syndrome?

I'm 29 and I have a debilitating health condition similar to CFS. I've been able to support myself for the past three years by working part-time from home for my old employer (where I worked full time before I got sick). However, I mostly live paycheck to paycheck, I'd really like to be able to earn more and have some significant savings, but working more is not really an option.
The job I currently have is not highly skilled, it's a mix of data entry and light copy editing and I make about $20,000 after taxes working 20-30 hours a week.
I was wondering if there were jobs/careers I could pursue that pay more that I could do part-time from home? I'd be happy to go back to school (I currently have a BA and could do one class at a time), or train over a period of years. I could push myself for meetings with clients from time to time if that was part of this new work. In a similar previous question the answers referenced independent consulting - but I don't know what fields that would be in or how you go about doing that? I was hoping for something with some stability as well, though I know I can't be picky.
Thank you very much for your help!
