    we use an old ipod and speaker to play white noise all night, every night.

    That fountain looks like it is full of lima beans.

    I worked shifts for five years in security work. 4-12am swing was made for me, but I worked 12A to 8A the bulk of the time. I never did adjust. The work was more interesting as all the crazy and violent stuff happens at random on the overnight but sleep was never right. I would stay up 24 hrs about once a week to ensure getting a full dead 8hrs sleep.

    My sleep was always agitated and rarely felt restful. Be very careful driving home after being up all night. It can really sneak up on you and I had trouble staying awake in broad daylight more than once...even with a very short drive home.

    My advice is to reset your expectations. Forget about hormone growth, Friel, and all that. You have to get your life together first. It's going to take some time for your body to adapt to flex scheduling, and the stress of trying to fit structured training into an unstructured life may push you over the edge. That means poor physical and mental health, and poor performance on the bike. I would figure out the flex schedule first and JRA during this period. You will learn a lot about your capabilities. Then find a way to add some structure once you have adjusted. You might have to get creative, like commuting, riding during breaks, etc. Good luck.
