Many Caregivers generally feel pressured to never display vulnerability, worry, fear, or even illness. Many who have hid these normal, natural parts of themselves away from their partners may further internalize their concerns, growing more unwell with the additional stress of excessive privacy. Caregivers may feel extra pressure to appear confident and like a superhero. Additional stress may come when trying to comfort worried or ill loved ones, including littles who may be emotionally demanding for reassurance. This could lead to Caregiver burnout, which absolutely may manifest as depression, distancing, short-fused, or just generally feelings of having excessive stress.
