GUY QUITS PREV JOB BECAUSE STRESSED, NOW NEW JOB MORE STRESSED & HE CAN’T QUIT

I am in my mid 20s and i have been working full time for about 4-5 years now. I job hop often due to my inability to cope with work stress. I struggle with several mental health issues. I can name a few but respectfully refuse to elaborate on them (ADHD, depression). I also struggle to find a job that can give me a fair work/life balance with a decent pay. If you look at my resume theres gaps in between where im not working. I have a recent habit of taking many months to recover after getting burntout from my previous job.

Anyway fast forward to my current situation. I needed money and i found a job which i initially thought was decent. Ive been in this company for less than a month now. First few days in i already knew this isnt the job for me. The way my boss communicates with me/rest of the company makes me feel some sort of way. Because of my constant job hopping, ive dealt with several different types of bosses and management. My current boss reminds me of a toxic environment i was in a couple years back. He speaks in a passive aggressive tone and makes me feel super incompetent. He can be super blunt at times and it can come off a little condescending. His style of handling things is also quite messy and there’s no proper work structure/flow to the company which i’m not very used to. It’s just the way that my boss is and how he handles things. It works for him and i respect it. It just doesn’t work for me. Long story short, i just want to quit. Here’s the problem…

This is on me btw, i did not properly vet through the contract before signing it. I beat myself up for it a lot, feel free to give me shit tbh i kinda deserve it. A couple weeks ago when i was thinking of submitting my resume, i happened to read through the contract and notice this part of the contract – “If you want to cease your employment, you need to give no less than 3 months’ written notice to the Company.”

I was shocked. No other company i’ve been in needs you to serve a notice period for this long. I really can’t do 3 months notice it will be so heavy on my mental health. I told my dad about this situation and how it’s been taking a toll on my mental health, he told me to just talk to my boss and try to negotiate for a shorter notice period. I spoke to my psychiatrist about the stress i’ve been in at work too. I talk about my unhappiness with work a lot with my friends. I really dislike work a lot. Is there any way i can legally get out of the 3 months notice? I will cave in and talk to my boss eventually but the whole thing is giving me anxiety. What if he resents me for wanting to quit so early? What if he gives me a bunch of crap and throws a bunch of assignments my way because he hates the fact that i want to quit now.

Edit: I forgot to mention that i only brought up a few of my mental health issues AFTER i signed the contract. Context was that my boss wanted to know what my workflow was like and I told him i specifically how i go about completing a task… because of my ADHD lol. So he’s aware of this only recently.

Edit 2: MORE INFO; it is stated in the contract that i am under 3 months probation.

Thank you for the replies, i understand that paying in lieu of notice is an option but if there are other ways, do let me know.
