Hello. I'm getting ready to leave a 25-year career to go back to school. Change has been on the horizon for years. My job is very stressful and I cannot see a future. It has started to affect my health, but I have been addressing that and have been improving. My father is 78 and 2500 miles away and is developing heath problems, i.e. impending hip replacement. My plan is to return to graduate school and start something new...something where I could work for myself and work flexible hours as I get older. I would also be within a few hours of my aging parents so I could check on them and help when necessary. Ok, I feel good about the plan, but not about what to say when I quit. I could blame it all on dad, or say my job has started to affect my health, or tell them that I've outgrown my job and think it's time for a change. I am very disappointed in management, and I can't see sticking around any longer. I would appreciate any thoughts, thanks!
