You mentioned that you blackout about 6 times and month and have bad headaches and dizzy spells.

First of all, you must get to the root cause of your problem. Your problem is suggestive of either of the following
1. Syncope - Charcterized by brief loss of consciousness. This can occur due to various causes.
2. Vertigo - CHaracterized by giddyness/dizzyness, nausea, headache and sometimes black outs.

You must get your self evaluated.
A MRI Brain and a clinical evaluation will be helpful to identify the cause of your symptom. You should consult your physician and take it fro there.

Once your condition is identified and treated, you can consider a full time job. Till hen avoid being in situation/jobs where your attention and consciousness is required.

Hope this answers your query.

Thanks and Regards
