This weekend I had to come to a decision to quit my job at Old Navy. It may seem a bit drastic to quit after not even two months or that I gave up too easy, but I assure you neither of those are true.
I do not hold anything against the company, it just wasn’t a good fit for me. The long hours, the stress and the shifting hours of work weren’t going to work for me in the long run. I honestly can’t keep up with different shifts every day, which alter my sleep schedule and affect my ability to take my epilepsy medication on time. My health is much more important to me than a job.
I don’t like being unemployed and I hope I won’t stay unemployed for much longer, but I know when a job does not have a healthy work environment for me and my needs as a TBI survivor and epilepsy patient, among the other side effects these have caused.
Even though my two experiences working in retail haven’t been long, I appreciate having had this opportunity but I don’t think this is the right line of work for me.
I’ll keep you updated on my next job opportunity when I find it.
