You were good at sales, have you considered a more high end sales job? Selling medical equipment or lab equipment usually entales travel from hospital to hospital, a running knowledge of the theory behind the equipment and great people skills. 

Or a day of coordinator for events? You said that you were organised, intuitive and a people person.

lalalyanne:  Sorry you’re having to deal with this. pp has some pretty good suggestions i think…  is there a posibility that you start back in sales for some stability and income and while you’re at it do some more research on what might work for you… is there a possibility that you can “test- work” some way next time? before quitting the job to see if you actually like the new work? or could you do an internship to help you with the decision making? best of luck

I really suggest some ergonomic mats so that you give your feet/ body relief. They are like memory foam. Barbers and hairdressers use such mats to help with standing long hours. it sounds like you should have a few in your work area.

Yikes–sorry to hear about your pain and your ups-and-downs! It sucks not quite knowing the path you want to take in life. Aside from pain (if it could be managed), do you think you’d like the bakery job? Have you considered taking a career aptitude test just to kind of get an idea of a direction?
