I’m cracking under pressure. My whole team is overworked and understaffed with no relief coming. People are working while sick cuz we can’t afford to take time off. It’s always like this and I can’t take it anymore. Advice on how to survive until I can find something new?

Put your boundaries up. They can’t afford to lose you, either. Remember that just like your current company, others are in dire need of good talent right now. You will find something. When you do, negotiate a long, considered break before your start date. It sounds like you will need it into be your best self in your next role. You will thank future you later.
