Finally got some sleep...

I guess sleep debt is at 30% apr. No matter how much you sleep, you still feel tired
It indeed takes at least several days to weeks of good long sleep to recover from circadian misalignment and sleep deprivation, a single night can't fix that immediately.
My favorite was when I slept for 12 hours and woke up more tired than when I went to sleep
Ugh there are some days when I finally get to my first day off, I'm so tired from sleeping 2-4 hours/day during the work week, I end up sleeping almost all day. Waste of a day off 🙄
Even if I sleep 8 hours I am still tired
It always seems I have my worst sleep days on day one of my long rotation. It's frustrating, definitely. Just do the things that work for you... Better luck tomorrow...
I haven’t got 8 hours of straight sleep on 5 years of night shift. 3 days? Quit bragging
I'm falling behind again, only 10hrs in the last two days. And probably another 5 tomorrow until I get my days off where I end up sleeping 8 to 10 hours.
I got 6 hours today. 3 hours in the morning, 3 hours in the afternoon. The way I put it to people is my life is basically one long day where I nap just enough to stay alive.
For everyone in this thread complaining about sleep you should look into different supplement stacks (ZMA) to help improve your overall quality of sleep when it does happen - besides that I am sympathetic to our collective struggle.
Ibfrofen PM!! Quit whining🤣
