The Ten Signs of Stress and Burnout

A Checklist for Caregivers*

  • You begin to withdraw socially, curtailing visits and phone calls with close friends
  • You have given up hobbies and activities that you have enjoyed for years, being too exhausted to get even daily tasks completed.
  • You are developing stress-related issues such as back pain, headaches, chronic feelings of fatigue and depression.
  • You have more health issues, coming down with colds, flu and other illnesses more than usual.
  • You have a short temper, finding yourself getting mad in the checkout line, in traffic, and at family and friends.
  • You have outbursts of anger at your loved one living with the disease; because there is no cure, or because he/she doesn't understand his/her behavior is erratic or difficult.
  • You have gained or lost weight unintentionally.
  • You have greater anxiety, an unshakable feeling of despair or pessimism.
  • You cry “for no reason” or over minor issues.
  • You experience sleeplessness or chronic insomnia caused by a never-ending list of concerns.
