Good At-Home Jobs for the Disabled

Hi, I struggle with chronic illness and disability and have one very part-time job that I split my time between attending in person and working from home. I need to bring in some more money, however, though I'm not expecting anything grand income wise.

It's hard because my illness is so unpredictable. Any ideas would be appreciated. [more inside]
