Over the last few years I have toyed with the idea of self employment, mainly because I find my health so unpredictable that attending work regularly becomes difficult. The problem being, when you are self employed you have to work or you do not earn.
But self employment could ultimately mean less pressure. Granted, I would have deadlines, but, I can type my pretty arse off in my own time. Especially when I can take my time to do it. If I do not have to get up and go out, when I can do an hour and take a break and go back to it. I could probably work more effectively.
The main problem is the risk involved when you are starting out. You need to build a client base or you need someone who is referring clients to you.
Still self employment is something I consider.
I have not made it into work the last 2 days, my pain following the PIP Assessment has been too much. This makes me unreliable as an employee, no matter how understanding the employer. After all they have a business to run. For now, I am resting. After struggling for 3 days not to take the strong painkillers I have given in again. I am so fed up of living life dependent on them to be comfortable – not even pain free – just comfortable.
