I have this strange problem. About a month ago I started a new job that involves tying and untying large ships when they come into the docks. In the job, all workers are on call day and night all week long. Each job is not very long, at most an hour and a half to two hours. Sometimes we must work nights.
For some reason if I work a late job, say at like 3:00 AM to 4:30 AM or later, I have an extreme amount of difficulty falling asleep, and especially staying asleep. The previous night I did not have work and went to sleep at 5:30 AM and then woke up at 1:30 in the afternoon just fine, no problems. I know it must be because of my job. I just can't seem to relax my mind and stay asleep/go to sleep. Even if the sun is not out I have troubles. Anybody have some suggestions?
