    welcome to journal land Linda!

    Have you read the leptin RX? It is all about resetting your circadian rhythm.

    The Leptin Rx will help get rid of all the cravings and get you on track. Don't worry too much about exercise just yet. Walking is good!

    It is really important to get outside and see the sunrise with little to no clothes on if possible!

    start your day with a BAB and leave 4 hours between meals and at least 4 hours before bedtime

    drink spring water

    eat seafood

    get as much grounding as possible....walk barefoot and hug lots of trees! Can you swim in a river? stream? lake? ocean?

    no fake lights after sunset.

    Hopefully you will be able to change your work situation as soon as possible.........

    No need to do any testing now.
    Do it about year latter, after you start you natural day/night cycle.

    That will save me from feeling more overwhelmed

    I understand that getting off this night shift job is my priority

    I stood barefoot outside. I'm in Ny state

    It's freezing out. Because I'm tired feeling low energy I only did 3 mins

    I found out about a potential day job doing respiratory care for short term rehab patients
    I have an interview next Friday!


    Getting outta the sleep lab and 12.5 hr nights would be a step in the right direction.....

    I am evoking all the light around this possibility


    The more pod casts I listen to, even with the low dopamine levels I have, I get more hopeful and excited I get about where health and medicine are going.

    Thank you to the all posters here and especially dr kruse.
