If it too demanding, if the money you making doesn cover the stress (be it mental or physical) it gives you, if you plain don like it, then it not worth it..
This is my third shot at getting my bachelor I don predict much hope. Leaving again would be humiliating but I so unhappy and self sabotaging that I starting to believe it may be a viable option.
