You've spent years dealing with bugs and software in general, but perhaps not as a programmer. So why not join the developer ranks and start coding yourself? Most of the programmers I know are good, although quirky, people. Of course some of them live solitary lives and work long hours, but they are dedicated to what they do.
The biggest difference between programmers and other roles such as admins or consultants is that programmers' stress is specific in nature and tends to involve only one or two major problems — for example, code that won't compile or features that need to be added.
I'm not arguing that programming is easier or less stressful, but you won't have to deal with the avalanche of problems coming from nearly every corner of every building you walk into.
