I hate my job. Absolutely despise it. Wake up/go to sleep every day with a heavy dread for the future. Grind my teeth in my sleep. Gaining weight. Blood pressure spikes whenever my phone goes off. Becoming unable to hide my disdain for coworkers and clients on calls, emails, etc. Have a loving and supportive partner but feel like I can't relate to her at all because she enjoys her work. I don't want to go back to my post-graduation poverty but damn, at least I felt like I was a real person.

I was in exactly the same place a few years ago and I'm so sorry that you're going through it. I got a new job and took a few months off in between, it was life-changing.

Sorry you’re going through this frustrating situation. Not every job in our field of work makes people feel this bad. Sounds like it’s time for you to explore other career opportunities.

It’s an employee friendly job market right now. Join the great resignation and find something that makes you happy. What really bothers you is that you hate it and you aren’t doing anything about it, except hating it. Take action. Control your own destiny. Go forth and prosper.

I'm in a similar place, I'm so turned off by most of my peers that it has become a struggle to hide. I have spent days questioning myself and the reality I've lived in for the last several months. I've been looking for months now, and I finally signed an offer today.

I'm hopeful for the future, and ready to be done with my current job. Sending you positive thoughts because you deserve better 💙
