Mindfuck was a bit of an understatement

I have another night shift in May and I need to swap with someone, I need to. It was a nightmare, care to come for a swim in the vast pools under my eyes? If I am ever forced to sleep in those bloody beds again I will throw myself in the river. Do you hear me? I WILL THROW MYSELF IN THE RIVER.
Help.

Oh dear, must you sleep while you are there? Could you just re-jig your sleep before that, and stay up all night, then crash all day?

No, it doesn't help with the alien eyes, but it does avoid the bed...

As someone who's worked night shifts before: sadly, it doesn't work that way.

Used to work overnight in a nursing home... I know that grainy feeling well. But according to my novice understanding of saudade, you will some day long for it once it's gone... Am I a portie yet? (no, I didn't think so, but I am trying...)

Oh, I know of what you speak.

My deepest, heartfelt sympathy and then some.

I'm guessing these 'beds' aren't really beds, they are just there for show, right?

Oooh, but just think of all the GOOD you are doing!!! Besides, your eyes still look better than mine right now. heh.

Oh! And ol' Mole-face here just looked at your updated pix over on Flickr... is that your poor hand petting mastectomy cat? You poor thing, looks most sore!

Oooh scary- or possessed? Nah, just tired....

I admire anyone who can deal with shift work!

Dahling, what a night for you. I love the pictures you have up on Flickr; it looks like the lovely ones got some great care from you. There is that.

Sleep in a hospital bed? I'd go for the whacked out sleep schedule first.

I do hope you sprayed that cat right back!
lol, great pic!

Were you in Saw, btw?

Um, yeah, you scare me a bit. I see nightmares coming now.
