The OP explained she works almost every day, but her efforts are not appreciated:
She had a day off and planned to visit her sister, but her manager called her to come to work:
She didn't go and now wonders if she had made a mistake:
This is not a healthy work environment
The OP should find a different job
"If they're not paying you, they can't dictate what you do with your time."
She should report the manager to HR
The OP added that her manager is causing her anxiety issues
There are actually only two options
"Don’t bother calling HR because they’re there to protect the company, not you"
A Reddit user explained the similar experience and the way they handled it
The OP should at least try, no matter the outcomes
"He has no right at all to treat you like that and act like your days off are his to do as he likes with."
Redditors advised the OP to find a different job because this one doesn't have a healthy work environment, and it will only make her more stressed. The other solution is to report her manager to HR, they might be able to help.
Either way, those are her days off, and she is allowed to make personal plans and spend them as she wants. They don't pay her to be an 'on-call person,' so they do not have the right to tell her what she should do with her days off.
