When I started having health problems, I could no longer do my work properly.
I was unable to drive when my eyesight started to fail, so I had to find a way to work from home.
There are so many things you can do to accommodate yourself and make it easy when you are at home. Driving when not being able to see, is not something you can accommodate for. My boss was a bit reluctant at first, to allow me to work from home and I thought I was going to lose my job. After explaining the situation and telling him I have the same computer set-up at home, he gave me a trial month. I only have a small office at home and the first thing I had to do was to set my office up so I could work comfortably. One of the first things my husband did was to get me a large monitor for my computer. My monitor is nearly as large as the television set in my bedroom. With all of the added heat in the room, I had to have a good HVAC set up. It was so hot in the room that I was sweating within minutes. I used to abandon the room in the winter, because it was too cold, but I couldn’t do that any longer. I wanted to keep the door closed to keep out the sounds of the rest of our home. My husband installed a ductless mini split into my office. The mini split HVAC system runs quietly and it is very efficient. The heating and air conditioning it supplies, is perfect. I have now been doing my job for six months, and enjoying every day of it.
