    I always have trouble sleeping after a 12 hour day shift. My body is just so tense that I can't relax. I try to read, take antihistamines, shower, eat, watch T.V., or whatever but NOTHING works. When I have to do three 12s in a row I end up feeling crazy! On my days off I sleep 9-10 hours. Any advice???

    I love sleeping... It's my favorite hobby. I look forward to naps. And I usually HAVE to have at least 7 hours of sleep a night.

    On days when I have to work, I usually get about 5 hours.

    Off days? Whole 'nuther story. I can beat that 15 hours, no problem!
