Midnight Shift...anybody?

Recommended Posts

Im not sure if this subject has come up yet, but one of the nurses at my Drs off was mentioning how it takes a couple of months for ur energy level to really kick into gear.

Well I work a 3rd shift, and still getting adjusted to it, so going back to work after surgery and being a little more tired might be a challenge

Anyone with any experiences or advice on this one?

I don't work a late night shift, BUT I do tend to do most of my writing and busy computer work late at night after everyone is in bed. Before surgery, the hours from 11pm to 2 or 3 am were seriously constructive for me when I was under pressure. I'm 8 1/2 months post-op and was just whining to my friend that I am so far behind on my writing because I just cannot make myself stay awake and do my work! Even if I take a nap AND drink coffee late in the day, I just can't stay up.As a matter of fact, I'm just about to pack it in for the night right now...LOL. I think it's time to figure out when my new "productive" time of day is, because it is certainly not after midnight anymore...

I work 10pm-6pm. I am 11 weeks out. I am still tired. I drink tea & coffee when I am having rough nights.
