So I had a pretty big client with a large contract not that long ago. The job was worth about $10,000 and would have taken me about a week to finish. However, I fell rather ill during that time. I suffer from a history of extreme migraines but hadn't had one in at least a year, up until the poor timing of me acquiring this contract that is. Just so you can get a sense of just how bad these migraines get, here are some of the things I experience when I get one: Extreme dizziness Vomiting Extreme confusion Extreme sensitivity to light to the point where once, I had my eye start bleeding when I looked outside Immense crushing pain Muscles all over my body seize up Loss of vision Loss of hearing It's pretty gruesome. So obviously I had to cancel the contract, there was no way in hell I could have been working on a computer, and these migraines tend to last days. I was talking to a couple of people I know about it just yesterday and they all said the same thing which baffled me. Essentially what they said was "For $10,000 I would have gone through all of that and sacrificed a limb!" I was completely taken aback by how much they were willing to sacrifice their health and for how little amounts of money it would take to do so. They said they'd do it for even less too! To me, my health is worth more than all the money in the world times infinity. I'd rather be a complete bum and healthy than rich and sick. So I'm curious to ask BHW, how much is your health worth to you? Would you be willing to put your health at risk or suffer pain for a certain amount of money? If so, how much would it take?
