Latest Member Comments
I've worked nights for the last 9years, I turn my body clock around, I have a lie in prior to my shift,I have cereal then at 2 am if I'm lucky I have my dinner which is normally pasta or salad then when I finish my shift I come home and have crisps
I worked permanent nights for 7 yrs my biggest tip would be if you get u for the loo DON'T OPEN YOUR EYES ! I stumble across the landing with my eyes shut, oce that pesky daylight gets in that's it... ping ,wide awake. ????
After your night shift go home try to stay up for a couple of more hours have a decent breakfast watch some telly or read a book then cosy in this works wonders for me I sleep right through. Also invest in some ear plugs they are a god send in the summer especially. I love night shift.
Thanks for leaving a comment. We're glad that you've got your self-esteem back now and wish you all the best in the future.
I ended up leaving my CPN role within the NHS, due to work related stress, my line manager was very unapproachable, used to email constantly, never praised me once, it felt like a witch hunt, stage 2 sickness, which you can so easily end up with after having D&V and then hurting my back 3 days off stage 2 sickness, the most uncaring, back stabbing, arse licking place I have every work! Thank goodness I got out and restored my self esteem.
