This very thing happened to my YD to where she just kept applying, applying, applying until she found a new job many states away from the job she left. She took a pay cut and lost some fringe benefits, but the mental strain of her old job was ruining her life.
I recommend the following:
...if possible, take some college night classes and update your resume
...if you are willing and able to move, apply apply apply all over for new jobs
...don't call in sick, if you are not sick -- that basically is cheating yourself, not just the employer
...try to stay on the good side of your bosses, so if you do apply elsewhere, you will get decent referrals
...try to find one fun thing each day to look forward to after work: going out for a good meal, going to a newly released movie, going to a museum, meeting a friend for coffee or a glass of wine, etc.
