Has anyone give up mental health nursing (for the sake of their own mh) and found another job that pays the same?

What sort of setting do you work in?

Care homes - particularly nightshifts - aren't too bad in terms of stress. It's mostly elderly care.

Qualified a year. Struggled through my training as I was a single parent. Wanted to give up so many times but once you have come that far, you can't turn back. I did well considering I didn't enjoy it. It took me 5 years. I thought once I was qualified, I would feel better. My life is less busy but I struggle to enjoy my job. For many reasons.
I need to earn a secure wage as I am on my own raising my dc's with no physical/emotional/financial support. I feel stuck.
