Wondering if anyone else has had serious sleep deprivation resulting from insomnia and problematic work schedules, so that you've had serious effects. Wondering if those effects were understood by your employers
or if you were blamed for not being on top of your game when the workplace caused your difficulties.
I remember I was out with my family in the early morn following 3 straight night shifts. We had just finished picking up some doughnuts to celebrate my completing the week's task, when I approached the exit with my vehicle.
After making my right turn I noticed that I was heading straight at oncoming traffic. In Bakersfield, California the Crosstown road is not labeled a one way all along its boarders...so my my fortunate luck I made another quick right and saved my family from utter doom.
I thusly vowed to myself that I would never ever drive after having had worked a night shift! Luckily I lived 8 blocks from work and walking home from work would only result in my harming myself (falling down!) rather harming others.
