    Yes, her stress is the two-hour drive and her unhealthy reaction is the headaches.

    I think a healthy choice would be to move closer to her work -- or take public transportation if possible. Car pooling is another option as would finding a job closer to home.

    Carpooling or listenging to music might be moderators of her stress.

    Ms. Sue's answers are excellent.

    I can remember when I had a two-hour drive each way to teach an evening course at a distant site. I found that the library had recorded books that I could listen to during my trip. Sometimes it got so interesting, on getting back, I sat in my carport for 10-15 minutes to listen to the end of the story.
