Just started a huge amazing job at toyota plant. gotta get up 4am for work, work about 10 hr days. Yesterday was me and my son's first day. I was on 4
hrs sleep. The past like 2 decades I have passed out between 3 and 5am. so getting up at 4am is not my circadean rhythm at all.
It's now 2:50am of day two. I'm to be up in an hour. I went to sleep at 8:30 pm last night and was wide awake 35 to 45 min later. Lied in the dark
bedroom on my bed tossing and turning til 2:30 am.
45 min of sleep. I have to drive 45 min to work with my son, he's 18 works with me, work 8 to 10 hrs in a factory and drive 45 min back home.
But im terrified they'll fire us since it's only the second day.
I have tried sleeping pills in the past when I'd have to be up early for like dr appts and stuff - I'm wide awake within 2 hrs of being knocked out
because of trying to sleep well before midnight.
Do I call in? Risk being fired? Is this case of mine for calling in stupidd or would they understand? im sure someone on here knows what goes on in
car manufacturing factories. tons of forklifts and dangerous equipment and on the feet non stop and walking everywhere in a factory the size of like 3
foot ball fields.
ugh. I"m hoping if I stay up til 9pm tonight I'll be awake for 41 hrs at that point and will pass out decent and reverse my sleep cycle.
Doing night shift is out of the question for car pool reasons. Else I'd take that shift.
