  1. I just need some advice - or a hug. One or the other.

    It sounds to me like a combination of reality shock and trying to adapt to night shift. I was a slow one to adapt, as another poster referred to in an earlier post-you may be as well. Having acknowledged that, night shift may not be for you. I worked...
