I am currently doing 8 hour night shifts and I can safely say I DETEST THEM. Worst idea ever occured to man. Now, you may ask why am I doing it when I hate it so much. Well, after spending 1.5 years searching for a job (in a big city, mind you) and this night shift position becomes the only one available to you, you really take what you can get.
Next year summer I will hit my two year mark, the amount of time most places look for as experience required, and I am already sending out applications for either twelve hour days (nights, pushing it, but they are easier than 8 hour nights). Till then, I have got to start learning how to manage my weight and energy levels. I am constantly tired, stressed, borderline depressed, and I'm not eating properly at all: either too little, or too much but not of the good things (waaaaaaaaaay to much bread and stuff like that). Help??? I don't know what to do, and I know my health is suffering.
