Night worker's syndrome...

Doesn't it suck that the worst time to be alone is when you get out of work on sencond shift??? Here I sit...2:10 a.m....still haven't cleared my head, and can't sleep. Being alone only stirs that pot.

Makes it hard to know when youre supposed to eat too. If you like your job, try finding other 2nd-3rd shifters to socialize with.

When I was on third shift, not only was it lonely, but I lost 20 pounds.


night shifts suck,been doing them for as long as i can remember.and i hate being white in the summer when everyone else is tanned!!:mellow:
Yeah I work Nights. The worse thing is your tired all the time. When I got promoted I had to start swapping shifts so my body clock is reall messed up.


I work graveyard shift at a psych hospital, what I miss most is being part of the human race, It gets to the point that Im so lonely that I will go malling just to be around people, even if I have to wake up at noon and go for an hour or so and then sleep some more.

I worked evenings and nights. Started using alcohol to sleep but only slept 5 hrs. with that. I also became dependent on it so I would never go that way again.
I have alot of trouble sleeping. I've tried alcohol and it works sometimes. I remember sexual exhaustion was the best way though.... it doesn't work though when I'm doing it solo for some reason though.
