Conversations with friends and co-workers these days often include the question, “How’s it going working from home?” My company sent everyone home in March and has said it will reassess the situation in January. Although the reason we were sent home is distressing and has caused heartache for so many people, my answer is this: Working from home is fantastic. It has been so beneficial for my health that I feel like a different person. I’ve gotten my life back.
“What do you think it is?” they ask. “Why is it so much better?”
I have fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome. The answer is complicated. Each little thing sounds irrelevant on its own, but the little things add up. The best analogy I can come up with is rationing food when you’re starving. Every bit of food you don’t eat now is food you can eat later.
