Hey! So, I'm 26 years old and will be moving to a new city. I desperately am going to need a job. Nothing too demanding because I have some severe physical limitations, but something I could do with relative ease in an office setting.
I graduated in 2013 from UCLA and have a degree in Human Cultural Geography.
I have not worked since graduation because I had been too ill to do so, is it better to tell my potential employer that the reason I haven't worked is because of my health or should I say something else? Unless something random and drastic happens, there should be no issues with me missing work for illness or anything of that sort. I am finally healthy enough to work so I can't imagine someone rejecting me based on my past medical history, although I do not doubt they could.
My illness is hard to hide. I eat through a feeding tube. Which ultimately causes it's own set of issues. I've been considering doing a document series on my feeding tube and what it is like to live like this through youtube and possibly work towards being a motivational speaker seeing as I've been through some huge adversities. I feel my experience could help others find meaning in his or her own life. I don't know....
Anyway, these are just a bunch of rough draft thoughts that I've been putting together. Any help or insight would be most appreciated. Thanks!
