i still think you'd do well at punk rock style craft fairs. You should partner with someone who's got a similar style and work together- have her do the things you don't feel as strong in, and you do the stuff you're already awesome at.

I do more stuff than most people. I'm fueled by lots and lots of energy drinks.

Healing takes a lot of time and energy though. I can't even imagine what MS must be like, but I was pretty unproductive and extremely whiney the year or two i was recovering from back surgery. 

On ebay you can see completed listings. not sure on etsy.
