Anyone else doing the midnight creep???

  1. You know, the one where your significant other is sleeping and you're too wired to go to bed....so you end up creeping around the house?? I should be in bed, but I just can't sleep. Too many thoughts are running through my head. Just had our first clinical of the semester and it was a doozy! Now I can't shut my mind off....

    Yeah, that's normal. My husband and I both do shift work and are usually up for 1-2 hours after we get home. Right now I'm off at 11:30 and get into bed around 1. He's off at 3 and hits the bed about 4-4:30. You usually need some unwind time.

    Me! Me! *jumping up and down, waving madly* Hubby is snoring as I type. I went to bed with him but ended up coming downstairs. Sometimes he's ready for bed before I'm completely wound down from work.

    Midnight crawl for me too I guess, I don't work tonight, but can never get to bed before 2-3 am on the nights off. I wish there was more to do late nights! Husband in bed since 10 pm.

    I know right? Tuesday seems like forever away. I've just been shot down for so many nursing jobs I've applied for and no one wants me due to "no experience". I'm a new nurse, never worked in a facility before, just got my license in May. I want this job so bad. I really just wish right now that I could sleep!

    I'm here too! I slept too late today so I can't sleep now. Not unusual for me. I worked nights for about 12 years, and liked it, but then I went to an evening shift for over 3 years. Now I'm back on nocs again.

    Altho I like the shift I work, I don't seem to recover as quick as I used to and sleep too much on my time off.

    Yeah, I was a creep for two years. Ended up on a CPAP five years down the road. I'm not sure if there was a connection, but I know I never adjusted to those weird hours and sleepless days and nights. Not for sissies.

    You mean it's not 'normal' to want to run the sweeper at 2am??

    My time clock is so screwed up. Sleep for a couple hours, up for a couple hours. Tired all the time. Can't wait to go back to days.
