How do you other guys that work night shift keep sane? I have been doing it for years now and I think it is starting to affect relationships with family and friends. I just don't have enough time on the weekends to do everything and make everyone happy and make myself happy anymore it seems. It is a day shift world we live in. I don't see my wife during the week because she is asleep when I get home and leaves for work when I am sleeping. I have fridays and saturdays off and work sunday through thurs. I am grateful to have a job. I know it could be worse. I have worked grave yards and had only days off during the week, etc. I have no choice in the matter. I would love to go to day shift but there just isn't any openings and they are very rare. Just curious how ya'll go about balancing your time. It just really seems hard around the holidays to me.
