Losing my sight...careers?

kazmataz Member Posts: 2 Listener
Hi all,
I'm not used to forums so please bare with me...
Im 27 and due to a brain tumour, I'm losing my sight. I have no focal vision in my left eye and I'm losing my visual field in my right eye, its currently 50% gone. Im currently out of work due various other illnesses linked with the tumour, but am looking for some partime work as the doing nothing is impacting my mental health. I was looking at teaching fabric and paper crafts at special needs schools but now im not sure due to my sight deteriorating. Please can you suggest some careers paths that i could still take that I wont have to stop as i lose my sight? Im very creative and need a job that has variety but not too stressful at the same time. Any suggestions?
