I’m a night shifter myself , Ithink that if you haven’t adjusted after a year you probably never will. I would try and find a day job , but until then the members above had some really great advice. I also agree with Mandee above about others never understanding our sleep patterns, because I get snide little comments from family and friends all the time about “sleeping all the time, or sleeping my days or life away.” I’ve even overheard a “friend” saying I was either lazy or depressed because I slept “all the time”. I probably sleep 4-5 hrs a day on my work days, and on my days off I sleep in the day and stay up at night bc it’s easier to stay on that schedule. Good luck!
