    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    Hi, Im a 32 yr old f. I work approximately 60hrs a wk or more. I often start at midnight and dont get home until around 4pm. I cannot change my job, and because of commute i cant get home any earlier. I have no energy when I get home so I dont work out anymore, I lie in bed and cant sleep and am very restless and get only about 4hrs of sleep a night. I have gained 50lbs in the past year, become very irritable, and always feel like im in a fog. Does anyone have any realistic tips for helping me? I cannot quit my job,or change my schedule. please help i feel like i've aged 20 yrs.

    Hiya Stressedoutsara!

    Try visiting our Sleep Disorders Community here on WebMD.
    Have you spoken to your doc about this? There are medications that can help you sleep, or maybe discuss relaxation techniques that can help.
    I hope that helps.
    Good Luck and Good health, Chrissy WebMD Community Staff
