I find I have to switch jobs every few years to keep from losing my mind. I never got fired, just quit on my own to escape the insanity.

I am looking for a way out of this field. I also have that sick feeling in my stomach like OP on my way to work. It's no way to live.
i was just looking at a job with a firm online about 15 mins ago...I will not be putting my resume in there!!! It was to investigate worker's comp cases for litigation. No thank you! I am looking for as little stomach turning in the morning as possible!!

Yea, definitley not a field I would recommend. Run far away! I wish someone would have told that when I first started.
