 I’m a SAHM at the moment but I’m dreading looking for work when my youngest goes to school because I hate people and I don’t want to be forced to deal with them again 😫 my husband is on good money so I don’t actually NEED to work (and won’t need to claim benefits etc) so I’m really having trouble finding ideas for jobs/careers I won’t hate!

 computer software??? If you mean programming there actually is a fair bit of interaction with customers and your team. And its actually a pretty specific skill that takes time to develop and talent.
Do you mean data entry? Don't think theres a lot of that left as more and more things get automated.

 Mail sorting is also done electronically, has been for ages. Sorry!

 Writers actually have to deal with people a LOT these days. It’s not as glamorous as people think.

 I have just been looking at degrees to become an OT. Do have a bachelor of occupational therapy or do you have a different degree? I'm trying to work out the best way to get qualified

 You need a degree to be an OT. You can do the 4 year degree or a masters over 5.

 It's a 4 year uni degree and the gist of what we do is help people live meaningful lives and function independently in their tasks and roles. So all different areas. Hospital helping ppl with dressing and bathing retraining after ops and setting up their home with equipment, hand therapy to regain function of their hands after injury, paediatrics looks at encouraging developmental skills like handwriting and eating, dressing and toileting, aged care do wheelchairs and equipment, cognitive assessment and plan the daily activity program, work rehab helps ppl get back to work, disability for equipment, retraining and working on skills to help ppl do what they want and need to do to be independent. And I work in mental health I design a group activity program, make goals with ppl to work towards, anxiety management, and help them be a part of their community. Basically you will never be bored as an OT as the field is so diverse and all about helping ppl be their best selves. It's awesome!

I am a teacher od kids with special needs and/or high behaviour issues. Love my joband bwing able to make a difference in kids lives. The small step and milestones make evwry hard day worth it.

I love teaching my students in high school. I hate all the bullshit that comes with it though!! But the face-to-face stuff is great.

my husband works and I love spending the money (yes he makes a lot luckily) he says I don’t need to work and he’s happy for me just to watch our 2 kids 😍 it’s wonderful and I feel very privileged be wise I grew up dirt poor now I never have to watch what I spend and get weekly massages

 Okay I make more then average and still don’t act like my head is up my a*s. This post is about career choice not the gold diggers post. So what you grew up poor now mooch off your husband so you can do lots of shopping and massages? Okay then sweetheart everyone to there own. Haha

 Good for you. Not really relevant to the question.

 It is though, and I’m not a gold digger, he just had a great business idea (which we formulated together) and he runs it. I didn’t mean to sound up myself but I’m just so happy and appreciative that I don’t have to live in poverty like I did my entire life. I’m just saying that if your husband is taking care of the finances, Instead of working you could do the hobbies and interests you’ve always wanted to, for example I spend a lot of time painting, I enjoy spending one day a week in a local aged care facility to help feed, bathe and dress the elderly or just to talk to them. I can do things I enjoy without having to be commited and tied down but I guess everyone is different and some find the grind rewarding. because op said they earn enough money I was just giving my opinion of what I would do because I personally hate being tied down :)

Personal care attendant. I've done other jobs, including more "glamorous" things, but I keep coming back to this one, I love it

Is anyone on here a masseuse (remedial)? Would you recommend it?

 Its a lot of work, my friend did it and she liked it but its long hours and tiring.

 I honestly just go to the Asian places and buy husband gift vouchers for them so I don’t have to massage his cheesy feet after work 😂
But seriously, I think it’s physically very demanding but I love getting a deep tissue once every week or 2, I just sleep soooo beautifully afterwards! can’t imagine the stress of doing so much physical labour though - it’s hard work and I think your own muscles would be really sore after a day!
