Health is really important! Hope you get to try it again, Freelancing/contracting comes with a whole new set of challenges, but it might be worth it.
For me, I got tired of the unpaid overtime nonsense and started to feel used. I understand that deployments sometimes must happen on weekends to reduce business impact, but years of weekend work started to wear on me. I also felt I was dependent on my employer to provide a career path, but it didn't match what I wanted to do. So I decided to become a contractor, but I stayed at the my employer, just converted over to a contractor.
