Lets get real. You want a job but you want it on your terms. Period.
Life is not a bed of roses. It's tough.
YES.......I think you're crazy for turning down the job.

Sounds tough but if I had used your reasoning, I would have turned down many jobs. It's called "work" for a good reason.

You answered this question when you stated that if you took this job it would "leave me worn out and tired, with little time and energy left to do and be with the things and people and pets and causes I love and believe in -- to live my actual life". You must live your life the way you want to and the way that you know will make you happy and/or at least "content". If you took that job feeling the way you probably most likely not be very productive and regret your decision. So keep looking for the job you really want and continue to volunteer. Volunteering quite often leads to full-time, paid employment and it will be doing something you truly love....

I agree that you have to consider if it is worth it to make a long trip or not just to say you have a where I live we do not have public transportation, taxi service, and it is a long walk just to the store...much less paying to go to work and bringing home less than what you are paying out...
