I sort of rolled into it and I just know it's not what I want to do for the rest of my life. BUT I earn good money, my family absolutely depends on my income and I'm scared to death to look like an idiot to step up and say "I'm going to stop. I can't take it anymore." It's not a nice thing to admit: Taht you don't like your work anymore. That work and private life is out of balance. That my parents payed good money for my education once. All this makes me feel weak. Like I should try harder. And the more I do, the more I feel like I'm failing.
It's a tough line to cross for me, and I'm not sure yet. Any advice?
P.S. Thought about working less hours, but I doubt it'll do the "trick". I'd still feel bad about my job.

I wouldn't just up and quit but I would start looking at alternatives. Is there something else close to your field that you could use your education for? Your happiness is important too babe and it needs to be factored in.
