Aaahhhhh, I’m so happy about this!
I asked my manager way back in January if I could switch to evening/day shift and it’s finally happening!!!
I just counted how many more times I have to work overnight and it’s only 6!
I’m so looking forward to being able to sleep like a normal person again. I’ll be able to tell if I haven’t been sleeping well because of depression or because it’s daytime and my body is like wtf are you doing. Over the last few years I’ve learned that you never actually adjust to that schedule. Or, at least, I never adjusted.
It’s been harder and harder for me to feel sleepy when it’s time for me to pass out (around noon) and I’ve been waking up throughout my sleep time a lot. Add to that the fact that I’ve been having extremely unpleasant dreams and you have a recipe for feeling like poop all the time.
The first week he has me working evening shift three nights and then first shift on Saturday, so that’s gonna be kind of weird but it’s gonna be a new thing. If it turns out that switching on that is a bad thing, I’ll let him know and I’m sure he’ll accomodate me because he tends to be pretty cool about stuff.
Only working four days a week will be really nice, too. Ahhh I’m super happy about that.
Trans things: I called to see about making an appointment for hormones at an informed consent clinic, and I haven’t heard back from them yet. The nurse took my information and it appears that there’s a queue for actually setting up appointments. She said I’d hear back that same day but I’m trying to be patient because their doctors move from one office to another over the course of the week. I may call later today to see what’s going on.
Hopefully other things will start coming together at the same time. =]
