Who's changed careers after having children? My boy has just turned a year old and I've been back at work since May. I don't enjoy my job, but it pays well and allows me to work part time. I haven't enjoyed it for at least the last three years but i thought taking maternity leave would give me a break, some time to get perspective and I'd come back to the job and maybe enjoy it this time. I want to work. Maternity leave showed me I'm no good at staying home. So I'm thinking of a career change. It seems like a bad time to go back to uni and I have no idea what I want to do! The course I did leads straight to the one job I'm doing and it's hard to think of switching and starting all over again. Has anyone else done it and how did you go? I'm worried I am leaving a job with a good stable income and I am the primary income earner. But I hate the job itself and the work only fills me with an anxiety that I feel outside of hours as well.
