Absolutely - that was the realization that finally gave me the push I needed to quit my previous job. It wasn't physical health, but mental health, that was suffering for me and I finally just had enough.

On week 4 or 5 battling bronchitus and sinus infection. Started new meds yesterday. Hoping to get well soon. So sore from coughing my guts out. Good news is I only missed 2 days of work. Haven't had coverage to be able to call out.
That sort of change is what finally gave me the push to leave my previous job -- we had a change in management, some major changes to pretty much everything and it was becoming a horrible, miserable place to work -- I finally just couldn't take it anymore (several other long-time employees fled before I did). I know it's only been a week and it's easy to have a rosy view of things this early in, but so far everything about the new job feels like what the other place used to be - from the way the employees relate to each other, feeling like I have TONS of support from my supervisor and actually enjoying the work I do again.....those things make a world of difference.
