Changing Shifts In Between, Feeling Tired & Drained

Well it’s the middle of the week. I’ve changed my shift 3 times in the last 7 days and I am feeling the tiredness. Last week after working a regular shift of 9:30 am to 6:30 pm, this week I came in the 5:30 pm to 2:30 am shift. However yesterday at 2:00 am I was told that due to a lack of personnel, I was to come in at 1 pm and stay with a set of new hire employees while they get their training virtually.

I went to bed slightly earlier than usual – not falling asleep without watching atleast 2 episodes of Frasier – and watching clips on my phone. I slept till 11 am, waking up twice – 1 to take a leak and the second time as I needed to make a phone call. I left home late, being very tired. At the office after I made sure that the new employees were all good and that their systems had no issue, I went to have lunch with a colleague. I just had a quick cold coffee and 2 slices of bread with an omelet.

I worked till 7:30 pm before I went to have dinner and then worked from 8:05 till 10 pm. I then booked my Uber to come by home and reached home by 10:35 pm. And ofcourse since then I have been online and sitting in my air-conditioned room.
