A year and a half ago I was running all day up and down unstable ladders, carrying my weight (sometimes more) in apples, in an insecure job where I could be doing 12+ hour days or barely getting enough hours to pay my rent depending on the weather, working for free far too often. I was 20 kgs below a healthy body weight, suffering the terrible mental health consequences of choosing employment over transition. I can't really complain about my current situation.
