Such a hard thing to do isn't it?!? What kind of work do you do and how many hours do you work. What problems does it cause for you? Is it a positive or negative thing?
Anyone with advise, thoughts, I would also love feedback, even for those that do not work.
Me: I am a mental health therapist with my own practice. I have cut my hours down, but somedays I have a full schedule 9-6 with one or two 45-1hr breaks where I go home to let the dog out or make work phone calls, emails, blah blah. I see clients 3 days a week and also have much paperwork and other stuff that goes along with having the job. I do like it most of the time. I like connecting with people and trying to be supportive. Of course there are times when it is mentally draining for me, or overwhelming to have to make connections and listen/converse to 7-10 different people or families on my client days. Sometimes I have to reschedule appointments for days I am bad. And then when I get regular sick (flu, cold, whatever) I also have to cancel my day. Most of my clients know I have a chronic illness and are understanding. It is still hard and finances are TIGHT. I hate the thought of disability but still feel that I could cut my hours more for my health but I need the money. And that is a bummer!!!
