Quit my job and don't know what to do now



TW: overdose



Sunday I quit my job that I had only had for 2 weeks at Walgreens. I was supposed to be a pharmacy tech, but they put me on the front and had me scheduled there through xmas. My pharmacy tech license was still on the office desk with junk piling on top of it. I knew it was going to be stressful, but I didn't know they were going to throw me into the lion's den with virtually no training. Everything on the cash register I learned, I learned on my own (through trial and error). I had minimal training on stocking, facing, and pulling tags. I never finished my PPLs because I kept coming in and being put on register. We're not supposed to leave the register unattended, yet when a customer asks where something is, you have to walk with them at their pace where it is and show it to them (I didn't know where most things were) and ask if there's anything else they need help finding. My last day, I was asked not to take a lunch by my shift lead. Her blood sugar was in the 400's (she's diabetic type 1). I had  had a simple-partial seizure earlier, and a tonic-clonic the night before. I think it was because of my disrupted sleep, constantly shifting hours, and mounting stress.

I got home and my best friend tried his best to console me and comfort me, and things looked like they were going to be okay. After he left, though, I got to thinking about how I was going to confront my manager about the working conditions. I dreaded it more and more to the point where I took about 30 mg of Xanax. I didn't wake up until 5 PM the next day. I saw I had a text on my phone from my boss, saying "you're on the schedule 9-5, call me asap." I responded by flaming her for the work conditions and told her I quit. I shouldn't have done that... Looks like I will no longer be able to work at Walgreens anywhere again.

If anyone is reading this, does anyone have any recommendations for decently paying jobs that won't **** me? I'd prefer to do pharmacy tech since I did spend the $104 on the license, but it doesn't have to be.
