Hazarth86221yWaw, good rant, very relatable.
I guess the only reasonable course of action is to not give a fuck anymore. Let people run themselves into walls and down hills if they want to. Let companies hire idiots and fail and don't save anyone and anything. Do what's asked, question nothing, and then GTFO and don't think about it until the next day.
I mean what else can you really do for your own mental health than to stop giving a fuck.. you can change your job, but chances are you will just go from one shit show to another... and even if you don't, no place is going to be truly perfect, even if you build it yourself... so really, I figure that the only thing we can do is to learn how to not give a fuck about anything...
Swap jobs, it can do a lot for your motivation. Don't bother improving dumb company.
Care less, work casually, don't do overtime.

Man if it is just some sort of sunk cost fallacy because of this raise you mentioned, forget it. Its not worth it if your org is really as bad as you describe it.
you're not bitter, you're a reasonable person who's been pushed to your limits.
setting boundaries is good, but dealing with burnout takes more than getting to a reasonable state, you need time to recover. if you could afford to, I'd recommend a break from work, though i know that's not a possibility for many people
