The list above applies not only to MTs but all industries as well. It's also a case-to-case basis, depending on how you mentally prepare yourself to be in this situation, how you handle things and what works for you while working at home.
I kind of like the idea which is why I'm working at home for the past six (6) months now. However, I'm not without problems. One of the biggest challenge was to find the right employer (yes working at home does not mean you are you're own boss, and most of us really are employees as well, but on a different working environment - well sort of). I moved to three (3) different employers in the span of six (6) months. Perhaps it's me, but I also have some issues with those employers as well. It should be a win-win situation and that both parties respect and understand each others situation. Over that short period of time, I learned to adapt.
Don't get me wrong, there are also benefits of working at home, that's why a lot people are enticed to doing so. However, when not prepared, and you don't instill discipline, you'll wind up with all these troubles presented above.
