    Anna felt as if working night shifts

    I am wondering if my sentence is grammatically correct.

    Anna felt as if working night shifts was squeezing the life out of her.

    Use "that" instead of "as if" in your sentence.

    I'm happy with "as if" after "felt". I might use "as though" instead.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
