Until a few days ago, I never had any trouble completing my job.
- I work circles around guys that are half of my age.
I’ve been working as a boiler repair contractor for twenty years. I like the job because I usually work alone. I repair boilers that are used for commercial and industrial use and that is a speciality. I charge a premium fee for my consultations and repairs. I stay steady, but I have time to spend with my family and friends. I never work seven days a week, especially now that I am getting older. I have far more aches and pains than I did when I was 25 years old. I have a few independent contractors that I can call from time to time if I get busy or overwhelmed. I had to call one of the guys on Monday, because I couldn’t complete a commercial boiler repair. The boiler needed to be welded and I’ve been experiencing a terrible amount of pain in my wrist. I tried to complete the weld on my own, but I couldn’t reach the area and the muscles in my wrist were cramping every time I tried. For the first time ever, I had to call someone to complete my job. It made me feel terrible and it made me realize that I’m not getting younger. I made an appointment with the doctor, so I can have my wrist examined. If there is something I can do to stop the pain, I want to get ahead of it.
