I miss sleeping at night

I feel about like giving up.

This week is my first week working a new schedule.

I've gone from working 5 nights/mornings a week to four nights/mornings a week.

And in reality, it seems, I'm working only 3 shifts - 2 10-hour shifts and one 12-hour shift.


I guess when you do the math that way, ideally this should be better than my previous shift.

I was so tired when I got home this morning and I slept for about 5 hours. I woke up and I didn't really feel like going back to sleep but I definitely also didn't feel refreshed.

I think I read somewhere that people working an overnight shift average 5 hours of sleep a day.

I go back to work at 6. I'm torn on whether I should try to sleep some more or just start stay awake.

The way things have been going, I think I'll probably sleep about 10 or 12 hours on Sunday or Monday. It seems like that's been the routine lately.
