Hi Kiara,
Not sure what your skill set is but there many different phone based roles either doing research surveys or calling on behalf of charity organisations.

My anxiety is so bad I can't do phone calls

How about something from home like a catalogue kinda thing. Or if you're creative/have a talent sell it online. People love homemade creations. Me and my friend used to make and sell baby dummy/pacifier clips on Ebay.

I do transcription online. There are a few different companies but I work for one called Rev.com. You don't have to have formal training but you do have to pass a test (simple grammar & spelling, mostly). I'm in a similar situation, fibro, anxiety, depression, so I understand. You might want to Google "freelance transcriptionist jobs" if you're interested. Hope this helps. Take care.

might just be a little trial and error. Depending on what your comfortable with, it might be worth reaching out to a temp agency. That way if you don't like it, you can simply try something else. I get it, I work two jobs. It's not easy but it is possible to work even with a disability. Not saying it's pleasant, just possible.

I know HSN and QVC have people that submit orders from home. The job link is at the bottom of their home page. Also elance.com and odesk.com both sites were featured on Good morning America.

This is a very helpful thread! I've been looking for a work from home job myself. I'll check these out!

Do you love animals? Maybe you can do PetSitting. Alot of times you are in homes which allow for solitude while caring for a Beloved Pet. Plus you get the added benefit of a furry friend. Hope this helps!
Btw, my 18 year old Daughter suffers from Anxiety and Depression. She is in a New City, her boyfriend in Military. If you need a confidante/friend, she has a huge heart. Hope you find something soon. Things will get better!

You can also look on a site called upworks. They have a kinds of freelance positions. I am in a similar boat but luckily my fibromylgia has been in check as well as managing my other issues. I hope this helps you
