    When I worked I HATED graveyard shift!   I go to bed early now and I like it! You can never get sleep back! However I wake up every couple of hours so  I am sleep deprived. Been that way for years ever since a home fire in 1965.



    I don't sleep well anymore either but I still wake up really early in the morning.....annoying. :(

    7 shifts on, 3 off, 7 shifts on, 4 off, I'm getting used to it, CB has a hard time getting her head around it though(not unusual). ;)


    Sounds pretty confusing. I hope you keep good notes. :)

    I have been a night owl since childhood.  I did not go to bed last night/this morning until 3:30 am and I got up at 10 am this morning.


    I stayed up until 6 or 7 am a few weeks ago and I was on track again by 4 or 5 pm the same day.


    ....drinking coffee and studying for exams in college

    ....go to bed early to recuperate 

    I used to do that when I was a teenager/young adult. It wasn't out of necessity but to study or socialize. I sometimes went to work with little or no sleep but recuperated the next day quite easily, just by going to bed early. Oh to be young again. :)


    I never went to bed early after staying up late and going to work or whatever

    I’ve always kind of liked staying up all night, seeing the morning move in. Personal and moving world. I tend to just go to bed earlier than usual and recover just fine. Can’t enjoy that anymore; I’m not alone.....

    After an all-nighter, I drag through the day. Getting a good sleep helps. 

    30 years ago not long at all. Now it's a little different. Heck I could work a shift get home head to the field work another 8-10 hrs out there do that for a couple months, not a problem. Back then,,, just have beer. Hard sleep for 3-4 hrs good to go. Strong coffee would help too.

    I once worked a 12 hour night shift,i was called in to do a 12 hour shift daytime,which i did,worked straight through 12 hour night shift,went home and had a camp,and back at work for 12 hours that night,,i was certainly better off in the pocket..>>>>>>>><<<<<<<<..

    I usually stay up till the birds start singing......4am or 4:30am or 5  . I know it's a bad habit, but it's hard to break .
