This past Saturday I strained an abdominal muscle, and have been in some serious pain in the days following. It wasn’t until I figured out how to immobilize myself in Eric’s recliner on Sunday that I began to feel some relief. By Monday, I still wasn’t feeling anywhere near normal, but had some tasks that HAD to be completed, so I set out to do those first thing, and then back to the recliner for more R&R.
It’s times like this that I’m thankful that I work for myself from home. In my former life, my jobs always entailed being on-call and available 24/7/365. I can’t say that I miss the 2 AM phone calls nor the board members knocking on my door on the day I attempted to take off as a vacation day. While employed for someone else, I was never permitted to set any boundaries — the workplace culture dictated that my life belonged to my employer, both on the job and off. In fact, one of the jobs I held made me so sick from the stress I was under that my doctor told me I needed surgery. However, as soon as I quit that job, all of my symptoms went away. That was the best surgery I never had…LOL
As I get older, I begin to appreciate good health more and more. And, while I don’t have corporate "sick days" since I’m self-employed, I do have understanding clients and a much better ability to control my own schedule. No more being on-call 24/7/365 for me!
