I never understood..

the resistance to labels. Labels are just how we describe something we see or think. It is how we make sense of things. Shift work sleep disorder. Please tell me how not getting proper amounts of sleep results in anything but a disorder? They call it shift work sleep disorder for an obvious reason. It isn't just to name something that isn't going on for the hell of it. They are actually describing something that IS in fact going on. People are not getting enough sleep during the day and it is affecting their waking lives because of the late shifts they take. Is it that hard to accept?

Personally, I do not agree with pills being the answer to everything. There is something to be said about melatonin supplements or switching shifts if it is getting that bad.
