My facking work is totally killing me... I honestly don't know how much longer I can put up with it. Here's my schedule for this month until the 11th:



1st) FREE (But ready to go to work if I get called in)

2nd) 07.15-13.00 and 22.00-03.00 (2nd to 3rd)

3rd) 21.30-07.30 (3rd to 4th)

4th) FREE (But ready to go to work if I get called in)

5th) 07.00-10.00

6th) 21.30-07.30 (6th to 7th)

7th) FREE (But ready to go to work if I get called in)

8th) 13.15-16.00 and 20.00-22.00

9th) 07.00-10.30 and 22.00-03.00 (9th to 10th)

10th) 07.00-16.30 and 21.15-07.15 (10th to 11th)

11th) FREE (But ready to go to work if I get called in)



This is just the first 1/3 of the month, the other 2/3 is pretty much the same. It may not seem that much but look at the 8th-11th. That period will probably kill me before it's over... And keep in mind also that I don't only have my work, when I get home after working the night shift I have to take the dog out for a walk, then I have to do the dishes and then I can go to bed. I also have ones a week to clean the aquarium for the turtles. They're kept in 2 aquariums which takes about one hour each to clean! Luckily I don't have to cook or clean the apartment or anything else since my girlfriend does that but still, I don't really get a lot of free time even when I'm off work for a whole day!

And besides, even when I'm free, I might get called into work and I can't say no since our boss makes us do it if there's no other way. Of course I get payed accordingly but I don't really know how much more I can take.

You either work in the kitchen or a barstaff or waiter?

That is one horrible schedule. I just started a new job this week and that's killer but the hours are decent. Any time you are finishing so late and split shifts that is horrible, I've done it before. The best thing is to find a new job Smile It just killed me doing those kinds of hours - no life, just a slave to a cunt boss and his cunt business.

I'm guessing kitchen work. I used to be a chef and that schedule looks very familiar. You have my sympathy.

Actually I'm a nurse.

The problem is just that the hospital where I work is extremely understaffed right now... We have regulations that says that we can't really work like this but the option is to leave a lot of people untreated and let the waitingtimes increase at least the double of what it is now.

I don't know, I guess I just rather work myself to death then let +10 people a day suffer because I can't handle the workload for the moment.

It's really a shitty schedule mate.
If you can't get a better job just a couple of stupid tips: buy a dishwasher machine and set your turtles free.

The dog is your best friend: nothig to say about him.

But something is working wrong with your boss: no way a hospital can run extremely understaffed and not fair to tell his employees ther is no other way but to do what he says: I guess someone is earning a lot of money from being understaffed and he is likely getting some of those money


anyway RESPECT from me as well Thumbs Up

We have the same problems here. The governement doesn't pay doctors enough so they go to work in the US AND the we don't have enough nurses... Hopefully the politicians will wake up before year 2040 and really motivate people to study in these professions by giving them Dollar

zeroster: Thanks mate! Smile

magatt: They are currently working on a solution. From what I understand they're thinking of employing people currently not finished with their studies. They hope that the problem will be resolved before the year is over. From my own experience, that means around april or something. I'll just have to hang in there until then and after that I'll have a buttload of money saved up after working these crazy hours getting really well payed and not having any life what so ever Big Smile

That's a hard job to do especially in those conditions. nurses are very underrated and neglected in terms of praise from the public.

I know several people who work or worked in hospitals - simply a very hard job. Shortage of staff is terrible for such a serious occupation dealing with lives. The same problems exist in the UK for sure.

noonlion: Yeah I know, often times when people ask me what I do and I tell them I'm a nurse, I pretty much get the impression that they're thinking "couldn't you find something better to do" or something similar. they usually don't say it but I can tell that most of them are thinking it. it kinda pisses me off, I mean, without people in my occupation, a lot of people would actually die.

magicalboy: Yeah I'm working on it. It's really difficult tho but I don't really have a choice. I might get burned out by the end of this but then I at least know that I probably helped a lot a of people by doing what I did.

Yeah sure, people say that you first need to take care of yourself and blablabla. I really don't think so. I help about 10-30 people EACH DAY (depending on how seriouse their condition is) when I'm working. So if I didn't do what I'm doing right now and instead just quit as some of my former coleges has done, that would meen that they have noone to replace me with so basically in a week or so, about 100 people would go untreated. In one month, that's almost HALF A THOUSAND!! I really can't see any way what so ever as to why I could justify not doing what I'm doing right now...

Min pojkvän är också en undersköterska och lider av samm problem. Någon måste tjän bra med pengar när ett ställe är underbemannat.
Hoppas det löser sig för dig o för min stackare till pojkvän.
Bit ihop. En miljon andra vill vara i din skor.

My boyfriend got the same problems. He's also a nurs. Someone got to earn big money from this when the place is understaffed.
I hope things go right for U&my BF.
Be strong. And remember, 1 million other people want to be in your shoes. Thumbs Up Thumbs Up

i used to have a schedule like this and i was like a zombie after about 2 months. you must try and get some downtime for yourself. the money is great but theres no point if you are too tired to spend it. get yourself on a pokersite and enter a tourney and have a stressfree couple of hours{especially if you are winning!} Blink

To be honest , i can play till i'm on work because i work in IT sector. So i have plenty time to play poker till i'm on work and i can concentrate till i'm playing. When everything is working good i dont have work , when system failed then i have work. So i wish you all have time like me to play poker.

Nurses in Sweden are working under very poor conditions, not only in staffing, but also the low paying salaries, and insurance and also those inconvenient times and conditions as they may endure.

I can not see why the Swedish government does not invest in long-term care enough but instead of 4.2 billion kronor, about $ 700,000,000 will go directly to efforts that the Army does abroad.

When it's good, he he has somewhere to complain and get some listeners because neither the states, municipalities or managers listening to poor people.

In my country nurse's salary is about $300 per month.
(for example: average cop get paid about $2000 per month)

Man, if you don't like you job, you should change it.
The fact that you care about others certainly suggests that you're a good person, but you have to think about yourself. YOLO
