My body clock is messed up

I have just completed seven twelve and a half hour nightshifts over the last eight days and it has done some funny things to my body clock.

I couldn't eat my dinner last night, I was feeling sick at the thought of it. Then I woke up at 5.30 this morning and couldn't get back to sleep. I decided to get up around six since the other half has his archery coaching course today and he would be getting up at half past anyway. I knew his alarm would wake me so there was really no point in going back to sleep for half an hour.

I decided to get his breakfast and coffee for him and make his packed lunch. These are the kind of things he will do for me when I am nightshift and have very little time to do these things myself. I often complain about the things he doesn't do - housework mostly, but he is great at helping me with these sorts of things so I shouldn't really complain too much.

Today I am going to do some business stuff. I will write a few blog posts and schedule them and probably try to get some sales on facebook. Business is starting to pick up but it is never a bad thing to drum up more business. Oh how I cant wait for the day when I can just work my business from home and not have this horrible schedule disturbing my body clock!

Lack of sleep can leave people feeling miserable. I did some night shifts as a student, 50 years ago, working in an old people's home as a summer job. I could NEVER get enough sleep the next day to make up for being up over night.

I normally do pretty well on nights, but seven out of eight is just too much. Four nights again this week coming :(

Sometimes, staying up at night to work can change things for us. Hopefully things get back to normal for you.

When I don't stick to some kind of regular schedule, like stay up several hours writing stuff online, my internal clock gets pretty much out of whack.
