How do I adjust w/o sleep?!

I love working, don't get me wrong but these rotate shifts are killing me. I work 5 days in a row until midnight and my son gets up early. Then I have a day off then three more days of work. One of those days I work form 4:30 PM til 11:30 PM then I have to go in at 7:00 AM. To top it off, I have my sister's wedding to go to after all of this. My question is, should I casually(meaning not trying too hard but hoping I get noticed) apply for a job that has regular daytime hours or stick with this job? It's only getting worse b/c the job is closing and relocating to almost a different town. I'm already worn out from all the driving I have to do. I'm soooo stuck.

  • It sounds as though you should be looking for a job with better hours and less of a commute. Good luck!

  • I would start looking for another job. Thats to much when you have kids and the hours are just crazy there is no way. Good luck.
