I definitely sympathize, and appreciate the good story, but I'm not sure
what you really want from the list. You have what might have been a
decent job in a lousy situation, you have too much empathy for your
co-workers, and you should leave. But you already knew all that, and said
as much.

So all I can think to tell you, as far as "how to deal with things here
until that time," is to get out *faster*. Why wait for a new job that
won't show up for several months? Get something else... it's not as if
good writers, especially with your kind of self-starting, need to wait
for a good job to show up. Go. Go now. Don't wait.

Hope that's the kind of perspective that will help...
