I have been working for the same company for 11 years. Worked from
Bottom to management.
January I got promoted and left the job I had loved. Due to my daughter constantly moaning at me as I was In her school. I went to this other job at head office, I felt ignored, wasn’t given no training and just had to wing it. Was told how to speak etc, which made me overthink everything. Also i did 200miles a day driving. So petrol was costing me anything up to 700-800 a month.
I have got another job down where I live it’s a level lower than what I was. And a massive cut In wages. But this would cover the petrol costs.
I just don’t know what the hell I am doing or feeling anymore I feel like crying all the time. My daughter is a nightmare and I feel I have lost everything I worked for because of her always at me. I lost the job I loved because of her kinda way.
I just hope I am doing the right thing going to this new job, means no late nights coming home and it makes sense as being on my door etc and I can be home with my kids. But it’s I have lost the level of management I had which I am gutted about. I’m just crying all the time about it. And just feel like I am on edge and don’t give a damn about anything anymore and just generally hate my life

Is there such a thing as nervous breakdown anymore? Anyway, there must have been a reason you quit the job? Just remember that. Moving down in rank is not necessarily z bad thing for anyone who wants to recoup their mental energies for a while. These are decisions YOU have presumably made yourself. No o e forced you In to it. It sounds like you are scared if the leap I to the unknown which is what your new job represents? If its the wrong decision, you can always change it again. I dunno how old your daughter is but you sound as if SHE tells you what to fo. Is the kids dad on the scene? Do you have a partner to share your worries with?
I'm no expert but you sound depressed, but I don't think that any kind of breakdown is inevitable. I'd advise, no matter how annoying your daughter was being, that you try not to place blame for decisions you made on other people. It will cause friction in a relationship which you need to be good & strong. As a separate issue you may wish to speak to her about how the moaning affects you and request she could help you rather than complain and upset you. But back to the way you're feeling; recall that life is full of ups & downs and neither last forever. Take the situation you find yourself in and try not to concentrate on how things were previously. May not seem like it now but this change will give you new opportunities and new experiences, once you accept it's potential and go for it. Give it a chance, make the most of it, and eventually you'll look back and see why it was no bad thing. We all like to stick in comfortable ruts, occasionally life gives us a kick to stir things up. Check out all the things you still have, family friends, possessions, whatever. You've still got that as foundation. Meanwhile a change in mental outlook doesn't tend to occur overnight, it will take time. And I suspect most of us have experienced not giving a damn about anything anymore and just hating one's life; but life is a gift, you'll find you've plenty yet to do, goals to achieve, in all sorts of areas in your life. Take it a day at a time, try not to brood over that which upsets you, if it comes to mind then acknowledge it and then find something else to think about. And maybe find an interest/hobby to lift your spirits. Perhaps learn a musical instrument or learn about a subject you always meant to know about, or join a social or sport/game club. Visit a show or concert regularly maybe. Whatever appeals to you. And good luck getting out of the sad state you're temporarily in.
People will say that as she a kid you are responsible for the decisions you make. I get that thought process but you did it for her because of her constantly complaining so i can understand in a way you blaming her for that. Things get better they really do it just takes time and new friends if you need an escape maybe get a sitter and set yourself a day off every so often. otherwise maybe look at going back to the school job if you really liked it there and just ignore her having a issue with it because kids usually do when its at school. start thinking about doing things that make you happy like new hobbies or a bucket list and do them.
