I’m like you right now. Hang on a bit longer

1)Schedule a week or two long vacation one month from now. You need to plan this/take action.
2) this is the best option: see a therapist. Get a note stating it’s their recommendation that you take a month off for health reasons. Contact your HR/LOA department and take time off. That way: You’re still employed, have bargaining leverage with new employers & time to relax. Schedule that appointment now

3) buffer up that emergency fund to 6-9 months of expenses so that you can rage quit.

Haha... love this. Especially #3. I’m lucky in that #3 isn’t a problem

I was in the same place, but once I found some solid opportunities and I knew I would have a good shot at, just said F it and took time off to prep and interview.

Which firm OP?

Not DS.. but close

I'm so done with DDs...

To what level EYP?

How are your working hours? Are you getting 6 hrs of sleep each night

My hours are also bad but nowhere near typical DD hours. 60-65 per week on avg
