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.
