  • I feel your pain. I have been working nights for almost a year. At first, I had to drink energy drinks to stay up then a OTC sleeping pill to sleep. I did that for a couple of weeks. I made my DH make our bedroom windows dark..really dark. I get home at around 8am, eat, clean a little. Then lay down to watch TV. Sometimes, I am up a couple of hours later and sometimes I sleep till 4pm.
