Growing up my mom was a nurse. She got injured moving a patient and decided to go to law school at night. I was a little too young to know why she was always in bed working late and would bother her. She now runs her own law firm (6 people). I don’t think I’d ever be able to do it but somehow she was able to be an incredible mother and switch her career. It’s possible. Good luck

OP this might sound unrelated but sometimes all we need is a short break. Can you get a unpaid leave for 2 or 3 months. If yes try that, you might come back and enjoy waht you do now.
