Work maybe too much
I have been working full-time since about nine months after my injury (C4/5). Over the past year maybe a little longer I have an increasingly tired, depressionall issues, and various medical problems. I have been committed to counseling and am trying to go back to the Shepherd Center for some intensive rehab.
I have been off work for the past month and everything seems to be getting better. I'm not as tired, not necessarily depressed all the time, and very minimal to no medical issues. Even the constant pain in my shoulders has not been quite as bad. I'm just beginning to wonder with two younger children (8y.o. and 11y.o.) and all of their activities plus trying to work 40 to 45 hours every week is just too much wear and tear on my body physically and mentally.
Has anyone succeeded in getting their employers to cut back on their hours? I would like to work about two or three days a week. Also how do you pay for insurance if you are part-time? Right now I am the insurance provider for the family because it's so expensive through my wife's work. Really not sure about all the insurance options that would be available.
What do other members do that work on a part-time basis or may be do for extra money?
