    LOL

    Hmmm. Do I hear a light veiled hint? (ok, there's no veil)

    I'd love to be able to step up, but at this point I am at the starting gate of looking for work myself. :) My one writing gig looks like it has come to an end and I am back to square one.

    Once I get some work, though ... who knows ...

    Thank you for sharing these resources. I have had ME/CFS, fibromyalgia, and multiple chemical sensitivities for over 4 years now. I am just dipping my toe into the part-time work (remote mostly, editing, writing, and social media). It is a struggle and found that I get more symptoms (or more susceptible to catching a bug here and there) because of the work. I am interested in learning about other ways to bring in income while managing a chronic illness like ME/CFS. What other passive sources of income have other patients developed?
