I actually just quit my job. I know it sounds irresponsible but when you dread your job as badly as I did, no amount of money can make up for that. I stayed 5 years too long. I plan on using this time job hunting to focus on me and find something that I can be proud of doing.
It is scary, and I am worried for what the future holds, but I know in my heart I did the right thing by leaving. I know it wasn't a choice for you, but better things await you!
And good for you to turn this into a positive instead of a negative. You will find something, but in the mean time take good care of yourself
