I started a new role three months ago.

Since joining found out my boss had a work related breakdown earlier this year, someone else had a stroke, and huge staff turnover.

I am not enjoying role at all, have suffered high blood pressure before now on meds, but in the last week I have been on verge of tears twice and dread going in.

My old boss at my old company would have me back in a couple of months.

Would it be awful to give one months notice now even without a definite job offer lined up. Have enough savings etc.

Blood pressure before has been dangerously high and I am thinking health first but feel guilty about current boss who is still not really well.

I would just leave. No job is worth making yourself ill for, you have another job to go to in a few months and savings to get by on. Definitely just go! I wouldn't even give notice if I was that unhappy

I would get the other job offer in writing first.

If you give a months notice and your job offer is in a couple of months would you be able to get by in between? If so, go for it.

Thanks, normally I would, but I can feel my be and stress levels rising and tending to think I need to leave soon?

Do it, put your health first!

If you can get by until another job comes along, then this is a no brainer. You leave this job. Your health is more important than any job.

Life is too short. Hand in your notice. Your new boss isn't your responsibility, be honest and say you're sorry you're leaving but it's just not good for your physical and mental health. flowers
Good luck

Do it. I quit a job after 6 weeks because i hated it without a back up plan. Luckily my notice period was short and with holidays I was able to leave the next day. I started freelancing 4 weeks later.

It's not worth staying in a role you dislike.

No job is more important than your health. Quit.

Your health comes first. Leave and don't feel bad! Sounds a terrible place to work if so many are ill or leaving.

If you have a job lined up just walk - your health is more important than a job.

Definitely quit. If you can get an offer in writing from your old boss for a November/December start, even know that you'll only be between jobs for a matter of weeks then.
