My mental health took quite a wallop late last week. My boss at work told me they would be switching me from the day shift to the night shift when I got back from my maternity leave. It upends my whole life and everything we've planned to put in place post-baby (childcare plans, budget, etc.).Technically it's legal, because my job title isn't changing. But the head of HR understands that it logistically won't work for me, so she's helping me find other options for better hours within the company. But in the meantime, I'm feeling pretty hopeless about the future with everything so uncertain. Even if, best case scenario, she finds swing shifts to offer me, it still means I basically will never get to put my daughter to bed and I'm really struggling with that. I know plenty of parents work at night and that I should probably just suck it up. But this came out of left field and I had been working daytime hours for five years (after seven years at night).
