The Caregiver Roller-Coaster

Everyone talks about caregiver stress—but often it isn’t that simple. What falls under the rubric of “stress” is in fact a series of emotions, all completely natural, all potentially devastating. Anger. Guilt. Loneliness. Fear. Frustration. Resentment. And an overarching sense of grief. These emotions may come sequentially or not. More likely, you will cycle in and out of each of them, over and over—especially since many are intertwined.  And so, we are going to parse a few of them.  Because if you can learn to recognize what you are experiencing and why, you may be able to let yourself off the hook for it just a little.
