Insomnia but have to work?

I have had insomnia for 5 days. Only slept for 2 hours a night maybe 3. I have another shift at a restaurant for dishwashing but I don’t know if I will be able to last. Should I call in and ask them if I could work a shorter shift or just try to buff it out and possibly have a psychotic break or panic attack?

    There is no reason why you can't ask for a shorter shift because of health problems and lack of sleep certainly leads to serious health problems.

    Ask for a few days off and ask a pharmacist about over the counter sleeping medications. See if you can get back on schedule.

    Ask your physician or mental health provider.
