Do Caregivers Get Angry?
Yes, they do. Irritability, moodiness, and anger are common symptoms of caregiver stress and burnout.
While anger is a normal human emotion, frequently feeling upset and angry can impact your quality of life, mental health, and relationships with others.
Those who are dealing with caregiver stress and burnout may struggle with anger management. To cope with caregiver anger, identify the source of your anger. Journaling can help you down track down your emotions and situations that trigger them so that you can identify the patterns.
Try practicing relaxation exercises and mindfulness meditation, as these can be helpful strategies for managing anger, stress, anxiety, and depression.
