So after nine years working in my current field I have finally had enough. I was beginning to hate the job so much that I would have very strong anxiety and I would take the stress out on my family. After my hours were cut it wasn't worth the cost of childcare, petrol etc so hubby and I came to the decision that I should just resign and study for a career change. I have only been out of a job for three days and I am freaking out! I keep thinking have I made the biggest mistake ever leaving my career? I think we will be ok living off dh's pay for a little while but things will be very tight. The career I am thinking about studying is less pay than my previous career but its something I have been thinking about doing for a while. I am just so worried I am going to study and then hate the job or that I wont be able to find a job. Has anyone else gone through a career downgrade / change?

Not sure if I have done the right thing.

No but if you hated it that much you've done yourself the biggest favor...you won't have to hate your crappy job any more and after you transition into your new job you will probably wonder why you didn't do it sooner!

If it was making yours and your families life miserable- than what have you got to lose? Money certainly isn't everything. We spend 20% of our lives and 31% of our waking hours in our jobs- do we really want to be doing something that we detest on a daily basis?

I think you have absolutely done the right thing. Life is way too short. I'm doing something similar at the moment, and I don't have a partner to fall back on... It's scary but it's worth going through if it means a happier life!
