My previous jobs were physical demanding. But since I'm on dialysis 3x a week, 4 hours each. I'm physically weak and also I have anemia. I would like sedentary work or remote work but I don't have any job experience.

God bless you read gods promises about healing Isaiah 53:5, “But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities; The chastisement for our peace was upon Him, And by His stripes, we are healed.” (NKJV) The ultimate plan of God is not divine healing but divine health read and confess gods word on healing post it on the wall say it out loud don’t give up in Jesus Christ name I survived a horrible car accident and a lot of broken bones and eye problems and God healed me! God bless you brother

I would apply for disability help since you are chronically ill. You can get help from such places as ACCESS-VR who will help find you work. It's a long process as you need to work with your PCP to get the disability paperwork in but as someone with PTSD, chronic anxiety disorder, two types of anemia and post thrombotic syndrome I can't work in my field and have no other work experience skills besides lab technician work. So I feel you. I finally got approved for help from ACESS-VR and that took two months, now they will help me in interviews to ensure I'm no longer discriminated against and to advocate for creating a custom job so I can work remotely in something I can do with my science background/skills/majors since I lack people skills. I really recommend looking into your state programs like that. I don't know if ACCESS VR is in other states but something like that, or your state work force.

In terms of knowing your strengths and weaknesses I'd write down what you feel you're good at, what you have no experience in and don't feel you'd learn easily due to your personality, upbringing, or mental health situation.

I'll use myself as an example. When I tried figuring out what I wanted to go to college for I knew I couldn't do customer service any more. I am neurodivergent and too sensitive. Social interactions draIn me and destroy my health, but I'm very creative, great with science and highly detailed work. I love to learn and adapt to various subjects rapidly understanding them on a level where I can adequately describe my work and purpose of work. I knew I was passionate about environmental conservation, research and strategic thinking to solve problems. I went to college for environmental and sustainability sciences, and also have a a.s. in environmental studies.

I worked in research as a lab tech in the clinical and pathological sciences of vet. medicine to utilize my passion for the One Health approach. I've learned since the age of 16 I'm a perfectionist, loner, antisocial and great with science bad with people skills. I'm an independent worker but love helping the team efforts to reduce stress in the department. I need to no be managed and hovered over, give me work and let me go. I can teach myself or ask questions if need be. I'm really anxious with social interactions and work best with written communications, no webcams, or phone communication. One on one communications are okay, group activities stress me out too much. I work most efficiently in a quiet place with no distractions i.e. from home, I can take on many competing priorities this way and efficiently get my work done. I can no longer do physical labor but used to help with invasive species management. I have a passion for learning, but get nervous in management roles because I have a blunt personality and no real ability to read emotions as I'm very very literal. I love giving guidance and helping people in general, but from behind the sciences since social interactions are so mentally and emotionally draining. I am a nontraditional worker, my energy peaks at 3pm, my biorhythm has me asleep by 2am need 10 hours of sleep for anemia and mental recharge, can't take sleep meds due to contraindications/poor reactions so I honor my body and sleep when it wants, get up when it wants and have worked flexible jobs for a few years in research.

Prior to college and prior to working in various jobs I had NO clue why I felt horrible all the time. I was fighting everything about my personality and biochemistry to fit in society and it nearly killed me. You need to work on self awareness first. Then a career counselor can help you.
