It’s been 3 days since I put in my formal request to work from home. I haven’t even had an acknowledgement.
It’s called flexible working. There are great business positives for it and I’ve addressed all the cons in the application so they’re answered before the questions arise.
However the most important reason for me is the difference it will make to my quality of life.
I would literally save 2.5 hours travelling time. I’d have control over my work environment which is the huge factor and I’d have better concentration.
Anyone who has this Fibro malarkey will know that some days you feel your age and then others you feel 100 years old. The pain in your body is real and finding your comfort spot can be hard.
I struggle with this in the office because I can not control my environment. I can’t sit with the sun on me and the window wide open. I can’t regularly move from my desk as often as I need to and most of all I cannot think because the fog becomes pretty intense.
The fog is getting worse for me. It’s such a weird experience that I still cannot fathom it.
It exists and comes over like a mist. Hangs over me for hours then all of a sudden lifts.
I can literally go from being beyond exhaustion to suddenly saying g’day.
