Caregiver stress can arise when a person is so focused on the needs of the person being cared for that the person's own physical and emotional health are neglected. 

Signs of Caregiver Stress:

  1. Depression
  2. Withdrawal
  3. Anxiety
  4. Anger
  5. Difficulty Concentrating
  6. Changes in Eating Habits
  7. Insomnia
  8. Exhaustion
  9. Drinking or Smoking

Even if you love your care recipient, you may start yelling at them more or have difficulty controlling your temper with other people as your stress levels rise.
