I don't care what the experts say. When I'm on call I miss a lot of sleep. So that Saturday and/or Sunday I usually sleep in. And by sleep in I mean sleep in. Like I don't get out of bed until 10:00.
And you know what? I always feel so much better!
Sometimes when we really have problems I'll be awake for 24 hours or longer. By the time I get home I pass out. And I pass out hard. For at least 12 hours or so.
I saw you CAN make up sleep. Screw the experts.
