Can you quit in your state and receive unemployment? You said that you're injured...do you qualify for disability? That's the only way that I would do it if I had less than 6 months worth of expenses saved.
You never know how long that it could take to find a new job. My sister quit her job because it was emotionally taxing and she felt free as a bird for the first two months. Then it sunk in that finding a job is no easy thing these days. She was out of work for eight months and she's an engineer
She took a job that was worse than the last one, but she got an offer four months after she started.
There's no guarantee that your next job will be any better. You want to walk into a better situation, which you can do when you have the financial leverage to do so. If you feel like it's something that you have to do, then do it, but be prepared.
See I did this too, but I didn't have a degree. This is especially eye opening seeing people with degrees not being able to find jobs. Shyyyyt I'll never do that ish again. If you are working in the field your degree is in and you can't handle this job.....what are you going to do in the future? It's good to have experience to go along with your education. I'm sure you can get a full time call center or retail type of job if you hate it that much.
This job is in my career field but there are plenty of other jobs in my career field also.
According to my boss (also a career chemist) this is the most unorganized and stressful job he's worked at. He says he comes in every day because its hilarious.
He also says that if/when we (me and the other scientist on staff) move on to any other company it will be cake because we've been forged by these fires.
