Night Illusions Watch

    • Thread Starter

    Sorry if the title is way off of the mark but I'm finding it really difficult to describe what's happening to people.

    Basically I started a new job last Monday. It's full temporary full time 8-5 at a Dreams warehouse. It's quite a journey to work so I've been getting up at 6 and going to bed at 10 each day.

    Physically it's been incredibly demanding and I'm plastered with bruises and cuts all over my arms, chest and one side of my face (from carrying things on my shoulder)
    Up until the Thursday I could barely move when I got home because everything felt like it was about to fall off

    Since I stared the job I've been having a really strange time sleeping that I've only ever experienced once before. When I go to bed I have no problem going to sleep (which is very unusual for me) but once I'm asleep I wake up and in my half asleep state I start thinking I'm in work So I force myself to stay awake thinking I've got work to do. This happened a while ago when I was younger when I used to think I was in school and about to fall asleep at my desk.

    It's carried through into the weekend with me stripping my bed and putting everything over Bannister on Friday night, and then picking my laptop up thinking it was a box, and putting it in an imaginary stack of boxes.

    I haven't had a drop of alcohol in two weeks and I don't take drugs, since starting work I've been eating far more healthily than usual and drinking about 6 litres of water a day.

    I need to keep working there to help towards living costs at Uni, since it's so physically exhausting I need to keep mentally sharp and this isn't helping.

    Anybody else experienced this or have any ideas of what to do.

    I think you should take a few days off and see if it changes anything because it could be something to do with your working pattern but if thatdoesnt help then you could go to a doctor or something and it could be happening because of stress so you should stay relaxed and calm all the time and take some time out to do things you enjoy doing...
    That might help...

    Hope i have helped you

    I giggled at the irony of your sleep being the problem, and you worked at a Dreams warehouse.

    Give it a few days, allow yourself some rest and if it continues then go to the doctor.
