To all the controllers out there, I wanted to get your opinion on sleep deprivation in this profession. I'm looking to start CTI school in the fall, but I've read a lot of stuff on the net that sleep deprivation is rampant amongst controllers. Any truth to this? Is fatigue a major factor for you guys/gals? I know shiftwork is a bummer, but it seems like a small price to pay for a great job, that is unless you guys are always sleep deprived. Anyways, I just wanted to get a little feedback. What kinds of effects do your counterclockwise shifts have on your daily routine?
Thanks, and I apologize if this topic was covered somewhere else on here.
