Thinking whether this lifestyle and stress are worth it is a good thing. If you are not being rewarded or promoted, get out. Save yourself.

Same here OP! I couldn't sleep at night. Woke up stressed and just sobbing for some reason. Finally went back to sleep after a couple of hours.

But why worried about promotion? That already happened.

OP Realx and nioy the time off.. you will have enough time to think about your promotion during working days.. this is a PTO time to enjoy with family or friends.. if you are married and have kid, just look at his / her face and see the excitement he / she have for spending time with you

^Nothing wrong with being single. Hey!

First get off fishbowl. Then breathe. Then do something fun.
