Husband works nights I work days....help!!
My husband has been working 11p to 7 am Monday through Friday and every other weekend 7p to 7a for about six months now. I work 7-530 with on call weekends. I absolutely hate him working night shift and I know I shouldn't complain but I feel like we never see each other. He gets home after I am at work and goes to sleep around 8am and will sleep sometimes as late as 7pm. So we literally have three hours together a night. I am just so frustrated. I am trying to be understanding as I know he works hard and needs his sleep but I cant help but feel like we are not as close as we were before this job. I have tried talking to him and he says he doesn't mind working nights and he cant help that he is so tired all the time. I hate being home alone every night and feeling like he doesn't really know what is going on in my life or me in his.I am seriously considering finding a night shift job just so we can be on a similar schedule.
Does anyone have any experience with this? I know it can always be worse and I really want to find ways to be more positive about the situation while also not feeling so disconnected from him.
Rant over. Thanks
