I do shifts and sometimes nights. Hate nights. I've worked shifts for 25 years, I think it must have knocked years off my life!!

I'm on nights again tonight, only another 8 hrs to go again.
I kinda like night shift, no bosses about and no politics, also i'm a lone worker so basically can do as i please for 12 hrs, plus I love the days off during the week.
I've worked various shift patterns now for 27 years, I've read everything that doctors have wrote about the effects of working nights and according to them I think I should be dead by now Crying or Very sad

I must admit I prefer the work at night, no bosses about, no traffic on the roads, going to bed when everyone else is going to work and the days off in the week. It's the lack of sleep I struggle with lol.

I've always done nights in the past because the money was better.
