    I still can 20 years later. When you build up a speed deficit, your body says sleep whenever the chance is available.

    What he said.....Retire....
    Do the math....draw your retirement and social security...enjoy the rest of your life...you deserve it....
    Or work until you die or get too old to do anything you enjoy.
    Just my opinion.

    If you have the opportunity, retire.
    Your health can be shattered overnite, and you will be wishing for that time back. We all have less time ahead of us than behind us.

    Be prepaired working days you might experience a culture shock. Night crew and day crew tend to have different personality.

I had to be rigid in my new bedtime and make myself relax and go to sleep. That made it easier for me. Not going to bed until youíre tired just lengthens the transition. Hope you find it all worth it after you make the changes, my family saw me different times-and different days on different Weeks, but their mom did a stellar job taking care of business in my absence. Home every day now and on a set daytime schedule, albeit 11 hour days.
    Thanks Skeetbum
    My gut says it's the thing to do. It won't be easy but anything worthwhile rarely is.

    I am thankful for all the responses and I thank you all so much.
    I will likely make the shift change.

    I am good at what I do( running a Television master control).
    You folks all help me with my decision.

    I am grateful.

    Alan, I'm going to jump in here a little late. My choice would be to retire, you will have more things to fill your day than you ever thought possible. As we get older, it takes more time to finish jobs. If that is not an option. I would take vacation time and make my self adhere to the new routine even to the point of getting up and driving to work each day. It will help your internal clock reset and make it easier when you start the new hours. It will also let you see traffic patterns and let you find alternate routes. I wish you well with the change.
