As a parent of a daughter with Schizoaffective Disorder, a son with speech/language delays, a partner with MS, and a father in the later stages of Alzheimer's not to mention I am dealing with CIDP, I can say that I have experienced caregiver burnout.
According to WebMd, Caregiver burnout is a state of physical, emotional, and mental exhaustion that may be accompanied by a change in attitude -- from positive and caring to negative and unconcerned. Burnout can occur when caregivers don't get the help they need, or if they try to do more than they are able -- either physically or financially. Caregivers who are "burned out" may experience fatigue, stress, anxiety, and depression. Many caregivers also feel guilty if they spend time on themselves rather than on their ill or elderly loved ones.

Sandra Champlain, Highly Respected Author, Speaker, and Entrepreneur
There are over 100 million caregivers just in the United States, that is roughly one third of the population. That means that every single one of you probably knows someone who is caring for a loved one that is disabled, elderly, or has some kind of disability. That doesn't even include all the parents that are giving care to their kids who might have special needs, or the ones who are grieving the loss of a loved one who are in need of support of some kind.
Caregiver Burnout is at epidemic levels! The sad thing is that if not corrected, these loving, dedicated and self-sacrificing heroes will become as sick or sicker than the ones they are caring for!
Do them a favor, and share this post with them so they might be able to listen to my recorded pod-cast that airs on my radio show. We have a different guest every Saturday at 3:30 pm PST. They just might pick up a tip or two that could make all the difference in the world between surviving, or going over the edge and getting closer to burning out.

What do you do when your parent needs care, but doesn't deserve it? Christopher was a caregiver to his mom before she died of cancer. He really didn't WANT to take care of her, but he felt that he HAD to take care of her, even though she didn't really take care of him as a child and teenager very well. With his father nowhere in sight, his mother nearly gave him up for adoption. Instead, she struggled to provide a life for him while battling multiple psychiatric disorders. Because of her struggle to keep a job, he went from being an average 13-year-old kid living in a 4-bedroom house to being a homeless 7th-grade-dropout, living in the family station wagon — and, if that wasn’t enough, he had to share it with 18 cats and 2 dogs! As a result of his mother’s limitations, Christopher constantly endured mental and physical abuse throughout most of his young life. For the next four agonizing years, Christopher suffered through — and survived — many painful experiences, which ultimately made him the man he is today! After deciding he wasn’t going to be a victim of his circumstances anymore,Christopher changed the course of his life. He overhauled his belief system and seriously got down to business. As a result, he proudly earned a Master’s Degree in Organizational Management, purchased two houses, married his love, and started his professional speaking and training career (Kickass Guiide to Life).
