I’m so deeply appreciative that I currently have flexibility in completing my various types of work demands.
As an adjunct instructor, I can grade my student’s assignments and examinations at home. If I should feel the need to rest, I simply stop and do so.
I honestly can’t imagine being able to work a rigid, inflexible forty-hour work week at this point in my life. Looking back, I’m rather stunned that I attempted to do so, for as long as I possibly could, when dealing with multiple chronic conditions.
When I hit the wall with debilitating MS fatigue, I absolutely must rest. It’s futile to even try to continue doing mentally challenging tasks when I am completely exhausted, since my cognitive abilities are temporarily compromised.
