Happy fly day!

I have my espresso (and coffee) black - so normally abreast of correct terminology... just caffeine deprived.

I’m new to the firm. My third project my manager was very hands off. He’s wants to have a discussion with me about my performance. He did not give me any support to work with; even when I asked! And my direct manager agrees with him, but it was my third week. What to do? I feel like I’m going to say something crazy. Any advice?
