Faith, I think you really need to identify what things drove you crazy at the job. Was it the clients? The coworkers? Your boss? The way the agency was run? Taking the work home with you? Some of these things may or may not be a problem in your new job. What exactly do you dread? I have had several careers and many jobs. Although I am one of those leaving social work for a different career, some of my worst working experiences had to do with a bullying coworker and someone who harassed me sexually, and poorly run organizations, not necessarily the clients. Outside of that, if you really do not like the career, there is always the option of going into another field. If you are not earning income, then you might consider school/training and, because of low income, you are in a great position to qualify for a grant and loans.
