Tell Us: What’s Today’s Caregiving Stress (Day 2)?


Tell Us: What’s Today’s Caregiving Stress (Day 2)?

As you may know, I’ve been collecting data about your caregiving stress, the overlooked epidemic in our communities. During a recent webinar, The Family Caregiver’s Stress, I shared the current results of our ongoing survey and share thoughts about what’s needed to minimize the stress.

We know that caregiving stress can be ongoing. I also believe that caregiver stress is constantly changing, that what stresses you on Monday is replaced by a different stressful situation on Tuesday. To show the constant and changing face of caregiving stress, I’d love for you to tell us about each day’s caregiving stress over a period of five days. Your stories about your day’s caregiving stress will make our data about your caregiving stress that much more compelling.

In our comments section, below, tell us about the stress you’re feeling today.

My husband has a friend staying overnight, short notice to get the guest room ready; extra stress to entertain and prepare food. The blessing is... he actually asked the friend for help on a project. The concern is that dh will try to climb his HAM tower to fix the wiring. I probably need to speak with his friend in private.


Today it is about me. I believe I am having side affects of a new medication. And I feel like poo. Calling the doctor/nurse this afternoon.

my stress today is all about my doctor appt this afternoon, a recheck and getting results of a procedure two weeks ago.


My stress for today is trying to focus on work issues while at work and not being able to control my irritability with co-workers.
