Should I quit my job?

I've had the job for two and a half years. It's a job with benefits that sounds good and looks good on paper and it took me about two years of temp positions just to get in. The job wasn't actually all that bad at first, but over time a lot of little things have gotten steadily worse. I feel like it's gotten to the point where staying in this environment is actually hurting my employment future. I do have the opportunity to do something part time (though unsteady) -- it would provide enough money to pay my bills and the savings I have would provide enough for me to pay for health insurance for a half year or so if I'm frugal.

I am so depressed sometimes I feel sick and actually sometimes start to cry when I have to get up to go in in the mornings. I've asked my doctor about therapy and antidepressants because I'm so upset and desperate. I'm at the point where, even though I'll feel guilty for being 'lazy' and worrying my family (I'll be unemployed!) and even though I know it doesn't make sense in this economy, I would rather risk it and do the unofficial/unsteady part time job while applying for something full time that isn't so soul sucking.

So should I quit my job, TQC?
