Its a new job. I feel like I look like a bad employee. I am quiet and on top of that, I am extremely fatigued especially as the day goes on. I need a job to survive. At my last job they paid less but it was a toxic environment but they probably dd not care that I was fatigued or quiet.

Did you disclose your health issues during your interview? I know it’s not necessarily something you’d want to share, and surely you don’t have to for every job you apply for. But if it’s a position that conflicts with what you have going on, then you should definitely make it known to your employer beforehand. All I can really say is to explain what’s going on now, so accommodations can be made if there’s the opportunity.
Its basic customer service i think. So its not like i have trouble being hwlpful and nice. I like people. I didn't really realize this fatigue thing was as big an issue until the first day of working. I felt like i could collapse lol. I don't know if this effects the job. I figure if it does he will tell me at some point. All i can do i try to do my best. But i figure everyone can't be high energy and super talkative because then who would be around to listen?
Do you think maybe it’s a position you just need adjusting to? I remember at my last job more the first 2-3 months I’d cry all the time because there was just so much going on and I was having a hard time, several instances where I’d felt I’d be fired. Covid shut that job down but by the end I was co-manager! It could be a thing like that for you.
Thats a possibility. Its new for me. I am used to more simple jobs and have been worried I am not good enough. I am glad to hear that about your situation. Gives me hope.
I completely get where you’re coming from. I’d be feeling the same way and because I needed the money but didn’t want to go through the process of job hunting, interviews, onboarding, etc again so soon I felt stuck there. My coworkers were so clique-ish and unwelcoming, the boss felt unapproachable and I was essentially trying to learn on my own bc I didn’t want to ask others, it all just made me stressed and worried. A huge turning point was just reminding myself that I was only human and I was doing my best. That’s all you can really do — know you’re clocking in doing your best, and don’t push yourself to impress anyone. You’re still learning, but you’ll get the hang of it and become more comfortable and confident. Keep faith in your abilities though and you’ll be ok☺️🙏
Thanks so much. Yep you get what im going through. My coworkers and leaders seem to not want to put effort into teaching or befriending me. I will take your advice !
