I believe that to be true. My mom is a nurse, she is the only person I know who sleeps less than me. She hasn't been on shift in 30yrs but still can pull a few nights at the nursing home at the drop of a hat and not skip a beat.

All the women in this area are use to shift workers and offshore hands. Most jobs here are gas plants, carbon black pants, power plant, casino, boat captains, and offshore. Shift is kind of expected around here.

When I met my SO, her dad was working 30/15 and always worked over. I drove airboats for the first year we were married, (gone most of the time) when I got this job and was home every day, she was the one that had to get use to it.
