I need to get out of this dysfunctional work place but I'm stuck and feel myself breaking down.

I'm in a really bad spot facing a vindictive manipulator at the office who has gained the support of my boss, colleagues, and HR. My character has been smeared and this person has the winning advantage. I have been trying to do my part in keeping things calm and civil and focusing on the work but all my efforts have been undermined by this persons drama and intent to take me down. I desperately need to get out of this toxic environment but I don't have another job lined up and I am the sole provider for my family and we are in over our heads with debt and bills. I guess I have known for years that the office was very dysfunctional but stayed because I like my job. I've made some mistakes but always worked to fix them. I've taken accountability for my own part and have focused on the tasks.. This person no doubt has a vendetta against me. I am not looking for sympathy but it sure might feel a little better if there was some light at the end of the tunnel. I am a wreck and just need to get out before I have a nervous breakdown. I feel myself breaking and I just don't know what to do.
