Julee, new jobs are especially stressful because you don't know the people, the culture, the unwritten rules, the procedures. Obviously you do ned to prioritize your job because of the insurance; I can totally relate to that. Perhaps if you can get through the first two to three months your job stress will ease.
Carol has given you some great suggestions. The only thing I can add to that would be, if you continue to have difficulty, a short-term low dose of anti-anxiety medication might ease you over the hump and allow you to adjust to the new setting.
