How do you handle holding down a job?

I would love to find a very part time job, but am terrified at the thought. I have not worked in over 10years and am now 67. Is the anxiety of going to work worth the preparation, fear and starving myself? I do some limited volunteer work but could really use the extra few dollars. How do you handle a very part time job (if there is such a thing) without getting scared? Any thoughts?

    This is definitely a great question. I personally had to quit my full-time job, as I wasn’t able to keep up due to Crohn’s. So I completely understand the anxiety you have.

    Thankfully now-a-days you can do so much from home as long as you have a computer and internet. I would suggest getting on Pinterest and searching “ways to make money from home” and you will be so surprised with how many things come up. I would start there!
