Your story was so moving, I could find myself in most of what you described. Working from home is now my goal too, as I understood that dealing with dozens of people and their pain is making my anxiety worse. You've correctly assumed that if you change your environment to something less stressful it will help with your mental health. To me, that's the only solution, and it's worth it. Our health is worth it. We're not broken, we just function differently.
