Not sure if this is a vent or looking for advice. I've worked night shift pretty much since I was 19. Grocery store, than LVN, than RN ICU. It's always been easy for me to work nights and sleep all day, until I had my son last year.
Now on my day's off I want to spend time with him, and on the nights I work and come home...well he's loud anyway and even with my fan and darkened room and hubby's attempt to "sound proof" the room I still wake up hearing him.
The switching my schedule back and forth is wearing me down, and I'm just not sure what to do anymore.
The option of switching to days doesn't exist, because there are no jobs right now. We really need that extra money anyway, because I have ridiculous student loans.
Sorry for the vent. I love my nights and my people, but now that I'm a mom I just feel like I'm barely adequate at it. Doesn't help he's so clingy when I leave for work.
