    Complete OT but I didn't realise this was the second season. I thought it was just new.

    @KaraB

    Yes, this is the second series of this show. This series is way better than the first.

    @NancyBlackett

    It was about a young couple who just had a baby. For 2 months, the baby just cried and cried. The mother was desperate. She didn't ask for help and one day walked to the liquor store to buy wine and her baby went missing. She swore she took him with her to the liquor store, but witnesses said that she was alone.

    I'll have to watch it on IQ. Sounds chilling.

    Yes. I drive home from night shift all the time. Been doing it for years. Not much I can do to avoid it.
    I do take the following precautions:
    -don't drive anywhere else in the day before having a really good sleep
    -have an icy cold drink for the way home that I sip constantly
    -sing, loud music, air con
    Plus I think I've gotten pretty good at keeping myself awake after several years doing it. I don't want to get complacent though- there was a horrible story in the newspaper a few weeks ago about a poor nurse in her early 20s somewhere in Adelaide who had had a fatal car accident on her way home from night shift. I could so easily have seen that being me.

    Sometimes I drive to work on 4 hours sleep. Should I be, probably not. Do I think about it? Yep, all the time. I know I 'shouldn't' be driving but I have to work.

    If I only had 1/2 hours I wouldn't go. Of I said that about 4 hours of sleep, I'd have missed to much work.

    It's hard. I get where you're coming from, but I honestly don't have a choice or enough sick leave!!!!

    Just to add, to get to work by public transport, it take over an hour. Too long because I have to pick DS up. DH can't take me because he works 1.5 hours away. I can't car pool because my hours are different to everyone else's. I have to drive!

    I have to add to this...... If people are saying fatigued people should be off the roads please don't go into labor or take your child to hospital in the middle of the night as there will be no night nurses or doctors there. I have worked nights for 10 years- yes we all try to get a cat nap on our tea break etc but there are many nights I don't get a tea break, many mornings when we are stabilising a critically ill baby (ventilated sometimes on ecmo (heart lung machine) do I can't just say- oh it's my knock off time see ya later so there are days when I work 14-15 hours then drive home at 9;30/10 in the morning...... Am I physically exhausted- yes.... Do I have any other option- no- and do my work have any other option- no we save people lives- your children's lives that's a 24/7 job so fatigue and exhaustion are part and parcel of it. However more than happy to give any bub hubber my work address for them to pick me up at work and drive me home to prevent me driving fatigued.

    I don't remember anyone saying that they would drive if they were so fatigued they were going to have a snooze on the way. I read lots of people who say that they have to get on with life even if they are tired because their kids wake them up. World of difference.
