Some practical tips
1. If your husband can find a job, ask him to do it. That is, if he is not sick.

2. If he is not going to work, ask him to share other responsibilities fully - like house maintenance - so you don't have that in your plate as well.

3. IF there is a way to cut down on the number of hours or commute atleast by 20 %, do it, so that you can stay less stressed.

4. And if none of it works out, and if it is only a temporary solution - try to think of it as "going the extra mile" for the family's sake for sometime, and then ask your husband to atleast appreciate what you are doing for the family, and ask him to promise to find a job soon and relieve you of the stress as soon as possible.

5. Any hard work needs to be rewarded - so reward yourself with a little bit of the money you earn - buy a nice dress or something like that - or eat icecreams !!

6. Make friends with the new nurses. You don't have to be defensive just because they are new. If you don't know, just ask honestly, and they will start treating you with respect. Plus read in the net a little about what the latest thing in nursing says. If you show interest, you will make the job more tolerable for you. Plus, talk to patients, and socialize in work, so you will have a good time at work. That will make the commute bearable.

7. You would never know what God has in stock for you down the line - this might be a blessing in disguise for you. Hope for the best, and bear the brunt for now.

By the way, how long do you have to do this crazy stuff?
