sometimes i also feel the same way. You just want to quit but you can't - you need the job. I guess most of us goes through this experience in our job. I think go through this every year just like a cycle. It would help a lot if you try to enjoy and love your job. If you enjoy what you are doing then you are not really "working" at all. Sad to say not all jobs are likeable, there are those that you just do for the sake of earning; in these cases i suggest you set aside to for yourself to unwind and relax. Have something to do ater work or during your dayoff like a sport or hobby not only does it help you manage stress but also gives you somthing to look forward to beyond work. doing this, you will find yourself coping better with work.

I feel like that a lot because I'm working way below my skills and experience but that's the choice I made when we moved to Florida and I decided that I didn't want a long commute. I don't have many options where I live so I'm stuck but do you have other opportunities where you are? Would a different type of job be more interesting to you? Would you be able to get training in a more interesting field? It's never too late to make a change. I was a stay at home mom for 15 years until my youngest started school and I went back to college and went on from there. Look at what you enjoy and see if you can translate that into a job. With evening, online and weekend classes available furthering your education so that you can do something else is possible.
