When your spouse is ill you have a greater chance of developing a serious illness, or even of death. This phenomenon is called the “caregiver burden” or “caregiver bereavement.” It’s real and it is something we should all pause and seriously consider. This is exactly why I struggle with the term “well spouse.” Things aren’t “well” for the well spouse because this person is juggling multiple roles which create major stress.
