I finally did it!!! I changed units so that I could change shifts. After three years, I left 7p-7a for a 7a-3p (7on/7off) position. I just finished my first shift and I AM HUMAN!!!! I can't believe how much I love it. I dreaded leaving my old unit, I loved that unit and my coworkers, and I took a big cut in pay because of losing shift diff, but it was all worth it. I just finally decided I HAD to go to days because of my kids. Ohhh, thank God for small miracles!! Yes, I worked harder and I was busier..but 8hrs compared to 12..and in the daytime. It was AWESOME.
okay, just had to let some of you night owls know..there IS life on the other side
