    What to do next with your life all depends on whether you will be able to manage without working, or if you'll need to work.

    Have you considered training for another career, something which you can do during the day?   My sister, after years in a legal office, retrained  as a Personal Care Attendant, and worked in an aged care home, doing mostly day shifts.

    Perhaps your interests lie in other areas though.   Have a good think about it, and if you are able to take some time out from your working life, have some quality time with your kids, and reconnect with them.

    Good luck, whatever you decide.
