Sorry, Judy - this one has me stumped. However, there are a couple of things that strike me with this plant.

First of all it looks like some kind of Sedum. If you bought it as a tender succulent, it could be that it's getting the wrong kind of treatment, and needs to spend the winter outdoors. Think of this possibility, and reassess it over the summer. I suggest that you start getting it used to being outside to get more light when spring arrives

Whenever you see the leaves bowing out like that instead of being flattish, it's a scream for help from the plant, no matter what kind it is.

Also when the stems are much too floppy to hold the leaves up for the light to hit them, it's a sign that they're not getting the light they need.

Move it into a window with more available light - succulents originate in warm sunny climates, so growing them in a dim living room won't keep them healthy.

Hi. It's called Anacampseros rufescens 'Sunrise'. It is a very slow grower.
