My story with anti-fatigue mats 

Calm life

I live a normal, happy life, with normal days. I wake up early, take my breakfast, and get myself ready for a new day of work. I take the bus to the factory where I work. The nature of my job requires me to stand for long periods of time. I work on a lathe machine for eight hours every day, with only half an hour rest. I love my job very much, and I have been working in this job for the last 10 years. I finish my work at 4 p.m., go to the coffee shop, take my coffee, and then go to the supermarket, buy groceries, and return back home to cook for myself. I eat then, watching TV, and sometimes hang out with friends in the evening before I return to home then sleep.

How it started

he story began six months ago when I started to feel some pain in my lower back and legs. I didn’t give it any attention. I thought it might be some temporary tiredness. I didn’t take care of it, and day after day the pain increased until it became impossible to ignore. I decided to visit a doctor for the first time in my whole life. I used to hate doctors, but now I have to visit once every month for a checkup. Anyway, when I visited the doctor and he checked me out, he asked me about my job and its nature. I told him, and here was the surprise. He told me that the nature of my job doesn’t suit me anymore and I can’t stand for a long time and I would have to quit right then. He shocked me when he told me that I suffer from rheumatism. It was the end for me. No more work, and my job was the thing I loved the most. I didn’t get married because I didn’t want to let any other thing influence my work. Now I would have to quit my job and become a useless person. How would I live without happiness? My colleagues at the factory threw a great party for my retirement and they wished me a healthy life.

The depression time

The first few days of my retirement felt like ages. I knew that I couldn’t live without my job. I decided to end my life. That night, I dreamt about my job, about how people treated me with respect, and about how I was able to solve any problems about the work. How did my colleagues depend on me? I woke up early with the intention to fight my disease and return back to my work.

Anti-fatigue mats solve it

I started to search for solutions for standing for a long time without pain. After days of searching, I found something that could be the solution. It is the anti-fatigue mats. I started to check into what they are and how they work and what the best types are. Finally, I bought one and started to try it in my home in the kitchen to test it. It was a surprise when I found out that the pain was gone and I could stand for a long time without problems. I ran to the factory and told them, and I asked them to give me two days to work and try the anti-fatigue mats. The mats worked great; it was like magic, I could work for two days (eight hours a day) without pain.
