Graveyard shift is better than 2nd shift. Have worked both and especially hated 2nd shift. I went to work in mid afternoon when all my friends were still at work and got off at 11:00 at night when all my friends were asleep. It was a dull existence. Graveyard is a little better if you can get used to going to bed at the crack of dawn and getting up in the evening, then you can have some resemblance of a normal life. I was made to be a morning person, so shift work really screwed up my inner time clock.

I am glad you got a job and I hope this RV kicks butt soon so you can kiss the graveyard shift goodbye!!

Sorry no RV YET!!!

Some tips for handling those night shifts:

Drink plenty of water during your shift and be sure to eat something light before your morning bedtime. It should have protein, that way you won’t awaken and feel as though you’ve been hit by a truck due to low blood sugar and dehydration.

I found it helpful to do a short time on the treadmill prior to bedtime to help with sleeping during the day. Use a sound machine or a fan on ‘low’ to drown out the daytime noises. Some co-workers use those eye shades while sleeping, but that didn’t work for me!

Hope we have good news soon so you can decrease or maybe end those energy zapping hours! Good luck!

Hey Catherine ... Good advice from the folks about how to survive the graveyard shift. Don't forget to keep humming that tune (very softly, of course):

TAKE THIS JOB AND SHOVE IT. hemademe bigsmile

You'll be ready to sing it at the top of your lungs very soon ... I hope! You'll be joined in the chorus by a lot of us!

Thanks everyone :cheers: I've got graveyard shift #2 tonight (2nd ever in my life)...the people I work with are SO anal lol and make it seem like life or death-the list is huge for reasons for being let go/fired-and not just obvious stuff-little things. Then I was accused of calling a co-worker a b****...she is one of my favorites to work with (aka not a b****!) so no clue how that got to her :( I will probably see her there tonight-hope she decided I was telling the truth. NO WONDER I have loved working for myself for years!!! They really all need to CHILL OUT!!! :shock: chillout :shock:

Got to agree with you on the 3rd vs 2nd shift. I now work a 10 hr swing and it is a killer. You have no life whatsoever.

To both Catherine and Justpassntime: Those late shifts are both tiring and stressful. What comes across in both your posts, although in completely different styles, is a strength, sense of humor and ability to enjoy the absurdities of life. We've got to make a little time every day for laughter or the struggle can overwhelm. I really enjoy you guys and all the others whose compasses stay aimed at true north, while taking little detours along the way. You may have noticed the intensity and anger building in some of the posters on the site. Laughter releases the pressure. Hang in, folks. We'll get there soon!

As far as your health goes graveyard shift is the most detrimental shift you can ever work. It throws your circadian rhythm completely out of whack which in turn throws your immune system out the window along with your entire glandular system. This sets you up not only for very serious physical problems, but mental problems as well.

So, we will all pray with all our might that the IQD will RV ASAP so that you can tell them immediately to take that job and shove it before we hear that you have completely and totally lost it as at least one of your fellow workers seem to have done already! Smile ❤ Wink
