Two thoughts — and I’m sure I don’t know enough about you to know if these are right.
- You are in a strong negotiating position. You might not feel like you could ask for a raise, but I’m pretty sure you could work fewer hours, possibly work from home a day, or otherwise pressure for better working conditions. If things are slow, you might even use your time there for personal projects ranging from exercise to writing to knitting. The reason I think you have negotiating power is because the business is oriented right now to not hire anyone else, right? So, what are they going to do, replace you? Probably not.
- Don’t forget self-care. You’ve had a stressful run — you deserve time off. Or a massage or a nice dinner or just a lazy weekend.
