That's amazing Nicole! I had a similar experience where I stayed in a dead end job for 8 years mainly out of fear that I wasn't good enough for anything else.
Now 8 years after quitting I've never looked back. I also realise that the coding I did as a hobby beforehand was good enough to get a job with.
Thanks for sharing.
