Ouch! My sympathy, and wishes for good luck in whatever comes next.

Definitely not for everyone, but a possibility some might consider is going
somewhere exotic as an English teacher. Photo opportunities abound.

Demand is nearly infinite and almost any native speaker can get work,
though the better jobs tend to require qualifications. Introductory article:

In third world countries, the money is generally appalling by Western
standards. e.g I make just under $1000 a month here in China, some
of my friends nearer $500.

However, nearly every job provides a free apartment, income tax is
negligible, and prices for most things are really low. As long as  stay
in China, I have about the spending power that I would making $70,000
a year back in Canada. Paying for a trip home or saving up for a better
camera is hard, though.
