      Yes I have! My company that I work for allowed me to work from home some time ago on most of my assignments and projects because my work did not have to be in an office per se. I'm glad that you are enjoying it so much. It definitely gives an alternative to those who need it. On the other hand, it can get tempting to mix home and work-as some are unable to handle the freedom of their environment.

      Again, enjoy!

      Hubpages is the closest thing that I have to working from home and I find that fun, plus I can do it wearing my pj's if I really want to smile

        I have been working from home for myself since the end of 2003. I would not dream of changing my status back to working for someone else.

        I love the fact that I do not need to pay attention to any office chit-chat or office politics, that I can work when I please while wearing what I like to wear. If I feel like having a break from work and playing a game, there is no one to breathe down my neck. 

        I work 18+ hours a day some days, but also take far more days off than I would ever have given to me as holidays by any employer.

          LOL, it's the office chit-chat and all the social interaction that I missed when I was working from home.  As much as I like working in comfy clothes, there comes a time when I need to get dressed, get out, and get into a more professional environment where there is some structure and limits and the ADHD can't get the better of me. I find I work best in an atmosphere where I have guardrails to keep me from getting hyperfocused or completely distracted, which is much too easy for me at home.

        I would love to work from home, but I don't even know how to go about doing this.

        Nope, not yet. But I certainly hope that I can one day. Hubpages is giving me the launchpad to achieve such dreams.

        I worked from home for a year and a half and loved it. I enjoyed the freedom of not having to answer to anyone besides myself, of working my own hours and of making my own decisions. I missed the interaction with people on a daily basis the most though.
