I am living in a separate time zone. More than a month after leaving a job that required me to work on graveyard shift, my body clock is still inconveniently graveyard.
And at this rate, I'm so heading for the grave.
This is how I felt when I was still also adjusting my system to working in the evening up to early morning. I felt so groggy during the the first two months, I felt like i was floating all the time, almost similar to being intoxicated. I was just ready to die coz it seems like I was going to break down any time then. That was several months back.
But now, I'm back to the "real" world. I need to be up when this side of the world functions normally.
Unfortunately I'm stuck in the New York's time zone. I usually sleep at around 8pm but would just wake up at around 1am and never go back to sleep again. Last night was worse, I slept at 11pm and woke up at 1am. By 3am I was having breakfast. At 6am I was back to sleep, only to wake up at 7am to leave for work.
I'm now at the office. Coffee sustains me, otherwise my head would crash on the keyboard.
