    I felt identified with a text I read on tensegrity sleep blog, where you described your 25 years of "night phone answering". I did it for 12 years, and decided to quit it, giving-up economic income in favour of health. As a urologist, I didnt have too much calls, but nearly always, I had to deal with the "sensation" that perhaps, I will receive an urgency call. That was 24/7 from monday till monday, it only stopped on vacations, and of course, for free. It is established, that you are on passive guard, and you have to give your home number !! Happily, that nightmare ended, I just answer for my own operated patients. My mood improved, and I feel that I can do my job endlessly. Academic prestige sacrified ? who cares.....health is first.
