Do you think it's bad for your health to work...

... from midnight to 8.00am?

I'd be looking at sleeping from around 3pm to 11pm and then going to work.

Is it bad for your health? Has anyone done it before?

Thanks guys. Don't bother any more advice please, as I won't be going ahead with my application anyway.

I used to work 6p-6a... ain't a biggie. But I see you will be able to not worry about working those hours and like a baby in the night.

Hey. Wow from 6pm to 6am? 12 hours?

I'm just back to working in a normal boring 9-5 now.

Yeah, we do 12 hours shifts. But I'm 6a-6p now (for the most), and it's much better. I hated working nights. I was very bitchy without proper sleep. But I adapted.

So you're boring 9-5 eh? I've actually never had bankers hours. I'd like to try soon - maybe with my next jobbie job.

i work night shifts often, i have to being a nurse as its a requirement by the National Health service in hospitals

its not bad for your health, but u need plenty of sleep to catch up on during the day and it can take some people a long time to adjust.....but the more nights you do, the more you get used to it

Cool. I gotta go now, but expect a PM from me tomorrow. It's only 7pm but I'm feeling so sleepy all ready! I only got like 4 hours sleep last night.

It's 4am here and I'm still awake. Damned insomnia.
I'll be awaiting your PM.

Sleep well!
