You know Peg,

I think you might be underestimating the blow your work-ego took and how huge an event you went through. Essentially you had the carpet pulled from underneath you and you fell -- hard. You should expect to be conflicted for awhile.

Give yourself come time to find your equilibrium again. I strongly encourage you to wait at least a month before making any decisions that will cause a ripple effect like dropping out of school. It will most likely get better and not be so irritating on a daily basis.

Or perhaps you can find something that will allow you to pursue your dreams. At least you can look at this and tell yourself "it is my job - not my life's work." And the negotiating you did already speaks to how great a counselor you will make.

And here is something I'm trying to learn. It is OK to be angry about situations that don't go the way I want them to -- and to even feel some outrage and indignation. I DON'T have to accept everything with a smile, and with grace and make it better for everyone else. (Have you noticed people breathing a sigh of relief when you don't appear "still" mad?)

And keep venting here. I hope we help, at least a little.
