Am I alone, or does anyone else stay in a job that probably adds a great deal of anxiety, just to have health care coverage to deal with the anxiety issues? It's a sick perverted Catch 22. I daydream about leaving and I feel better, but then worry because what will happen to my treatment. I know my challenges are not ALL attributable to work, so how do I pay my bills without a job.

Torn in so many directions.

Hopefully in a few years health care will be much more accessible, and you can find a job you like more or perhaps even a part-time gig and not have to worry so much about your health.

Until then, there's Social Security disability and all of that, but I doubt that's what you're looking for.
