Caring for a family member who is aging or ill may be what love is made of. However, caregiver stress is a fact. Women caregivers are more likely than men to feel overwhelmed and to experience higher levels of emotional distress and physical strain. Signs of caregiver stress include weight problems, sleeping difficulties, feeling chronically agitated, irritable, tired and losing interest in social life. It is important to speak with someone to help in managing your emotions and learning how to give your best without burning yourself out.
