    managing sleep
    stressedoutsara posted:
    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
