Has anyone gotten to such a low point that quit their job to try to find some meaning to life? I feel depressed and walking a very meaningless life and all i wanna do is pack and leave to travel the world to try to find some meaning😭

How long do you want to take off? If you can find a job now then you can probably find a job in a year. Just save up the money you need before quitting.

Ya i did that for 2 years. Took a sabbatical and pursued my hobbies. It put lot of things in perspective for me and I learnt a lot about meaning of life as well as people.
I used to think work was life but I discovered there are many other things that give meaning and satisfaction. The key was to discover balance of life and how different pillars contribute to a happy and content life.
I did that when i was younger when life had less responsibilities.

I took sabbatical and it was the best decision of my life.

Sounds like burnout. There’s more to life than working.

Take care of yourself. Work isn’t going anywhere and money in the bank is only as good as what you want to get out of life.

You might benefit from speaking with a professional behavioral therapist to help sort through the feelings. Pretty sure you can get regular sessions covered completely under EY benefits. Most everyone faces these thoughts when they get out of school and hit the open world of adulthood.

You aren’t going to uncover the meaning of life in your next project, and nobody worth listening to is going to push back if you say you need to dial things back to sort yourself out. LOA policies exist for a reason.

Multiple times 😅 I was actually able to take multiple months off and travel. It was a good experience. It grounded me, gave me more confidence in a certain way (I travelled alone as a female in South America without knowing Spanish) as I found myself in new situations and had to get out of my comfort zone, I came back more motivated and appreciative of the fact I was able to experience this. I definitely don’t regret it and would always do it again, but I didn’t find more meaning or purpose in life. Maybe that’s just me though or maybe you would need to do another type of trip for that.

Is anyone on a low dose of Adderall or a similar stimulant, and do you find it helpful/effective?

When I was diagnosed (at 20 yo) I started on Adderall XR and my psychiatrist essentially took a “keep upping the dose until you feel side effects” approach, even though I still saw some benefits at a lower dose. I’m currently unmedicated and am somewhat hesitant to restart, but feel I could see some benefit and better stability with the help of medication.
