New work shift depression? - May 7th 2019, 10:14 PM

Forgive me if this is in the wrong forum, I'm running on 3 hours of sleep. So as most of you know I'm working midnights, well, ever since I started I've been prone to bouts of random crying for no reason and just minor depression. Is it from the shift change you think or could it be something else? I'm seeing my psychiatrist tomorrow morning, so maybe I can get some answers.

1. (of a person or animal) able to withstand or recover quickly from difficult conditions.
2. (of a substance or object) able to recoil or spring back into shape after bending, stretching, or being compressed.

We all possess resilience, we just need to realize it.

How did the meeting with your psychiatrist go?

It's possible that the shift changes may be contributing towards the bouts of crying and depression. More so if you are regularly only running on a few hours of sleep. It's known that lack of sleep can affect your mental health. If you feel that the shift changes and lack of sleep are affecting your mental health, you might want to check out this article on why sleep is important and what you can do to catch up on lost sleep.

If you have previously/currently struggled with mental illness it may be that you are relapsing, but I'm sure your psychiatrist would be able to help you if that was the case.

Keep us updated, if you want
