Careers I would have liked the freedom to choose, or not:
- Pilot/air traffic controller
- University prof
- Medical personnel (medical tech, EMT, nurse, etc)
- Any entry level job (retail, foodservice, etc)
- Reporter/writer for a weekly or daily publication
Basically any job where you can’t call in sick two dozen days a year and still keep your job. If I work full time, I can make up hours if I work on a flexible schedule…the problem with that is that if I have a sick day and make up the time that is essentially a six-day week for me. I then have to do chores on day 7 because I need to make hay while the sun shines, which means socializing and relaxation get pushed to the backseat, which increases my stress and fatigue, which increases the chance of migraine.
