Sleep has been a struggle for me since I was a teenager. I was convinced all through middle school, high school, and college that mornings were the devil and I was meant to live by the moon. Fast forward to becoming a nurse... I started off on nights and loved it at first. I was wide awake when my shift started, and dead tired and ready for bed when my shift ended. I would get home at 8-830 in the morning and immediately pass out until 5 in the afternoon without issue. Slowly, but surely though, I fell into the groove of not being able to fall asleep until noon, while still having to wake up at 5 PM for work, just like when I lived by the sun- could never fall asleep until at least midnight and would have to be top at 5 or 6 AM to start my day. So I made the switch back to days, because if I was going to constantly sleep like crap, I at least wanted to be on the same schedule as the rest of society. So now here I am, still dragging my feet to get up in the morning for work, being tired all day, for some reason not being able to fall asleep until midnight no matter how exhausted I am, and on my days off I will literally sleep until 2:30 in the afternoon and have absolutely no energy to do anything. I just got a full blood panel ran on me, and everything came back completely perfect. Not one blood cell or chem level was out of place. My TSH was perfectly normal as well. I tell myself everyday that I should drag myself to the gym or just do SOMETHING, but I don't want to. I am exhausted. I just want to sleep and lay in bed all day. I know that it is wrong, but I don't know what to do about it or where to turn. Anyone else feel this way? Or has anyone else felt this way and found a solution? Please let me know.
