When life hands you lemons, grab teq uila and salt and call me! When life hands you lemons, throw them at someone! When life hands you lemons, get sugar and water or your lemonade will suck! When life hands you lemons, make apple juice then sit back and let the world wonder how the heck you did it! When life hands you lemons, throw them back and ask for chocolate!!! When life hands you lemons, be grateful they are gluten free! When life hands you lemons, add vod ka! When life hands you lemons, use the opportunity to add zest to your life! When life hands you lemons, put a slice in your tea! When life hands you lemons, give yourself a lemon facial! When life hands you lemons, laugh because life doesn't have hands! When life hands you lemons, stomp on them and watch them squirt! When life hands you lemons....... oh screw it. That's enough, lol.

When life hands you lemons... realize it's only temporary. Something better will come your way, and you'll look back and say "screw dem plump little yellow sour suckers." 

 Sorry you didn't get it river, but I know you'll escape your bad boss. Soon you will move on to a better place. Soon you will be free.

Love & light

The trouble with dealing with recruiters is that you're not the only candidate they contact. That means there is competition and less chances to get the job.
For the last job I got there was no competition. They had needs, but didn't post any job offer. I took the initiative and called the person responsible for the department concerned (not human resources, you don't want to go through them) and pitched my skills, experiences, and interest, and that I wanted a meeting. The following day I met the president of the company. There was no human resources people. He asked me a few of the usual interview questions, but most of the meeting he was describing what they are doing and their history. The same day I had an offer which I took.
I encourage you to take the initiative. It's a lot more rewarding because the chances are much better. All it takes is a list of employers you are interested in, and a pitch for selling yourself. Then you call the company and ask the name of the person responsible for the department concerned. It's important to avoid HR because if you talk to them all they'll do is ask for your cv and put it in a huge stack of hundreds of other candidates. When you reach the person by phone, you say the pitch and ask for a meeting.
It might seem daunting to do cold calls to companies like that, but after a few it gets much easier. This method works for 99.9% of occupations. If you want coaching let me know.
