Is your partner also your caregiver ?

Often the roles are mesh together & its forgotten that before they became your caregiver they were your partner. How do you deal with maintaining clear boundaries?

  1. This is a great topic of conversation, especially for me because my partner isn't anywhere near the care giver type of person. It's difficult and I certainly have more to say on the matter. I feel that this has put a strain on my already pressed relationship. I see my spouse in a way I do not desire now, and it upsets me. I know the easiest thing to say is everyone's been great and supportive but actually they have not. I have had to figure out how to take care of myself as much as possible. There are no clear boundaries.
