Kanye West may have been discharged from the hospital, but his wife Kim Kardashian West is still struggling to cope.

As of Wednesday, West had returned home after being hospitalized for exhaustion last week, but a source tells PEOPLE Kardashian West continues to feel the strain.

“Kim is really stressed out,” says the insider of the reality star, who was still recovering from trauma of her own when West’s crisis hit. Just two months ago, Kardashian West, 36, was robbed at gunpoint and had millions of dollars worth of jewelry stolen from her in Paris.

According to the insider, Kardashian West’s family and friends are rallying around her to provide whatever support they can.

“Everyone is trying to pitch in and help her out to relieve some of that and everything she’s going through,” says the source.

West, 39, was hospitalized on Nov. 21, shortly after he canceled the remaining 21 dates of his Saint Pablo tour. At the time, Kardashian West was in New York City planning on attending the 2016 Angel Ball, which honored her late father Robert Kardashian, who died of esophageal cancer in 2003. The event would have marked the star’s first public appearance since the robbery, but she skipped out on the gala at the last minute to rush back to Los Angeles in order to be by West’s side.

While rumors of marriage trouble began circulating after West’s hospitalization, a source close to the couple told PEOPLE on Thursday that there aren’t serious issues in the relationship.

“That is not accurate,” said the insider. “There are frustrations and problems, like any relationship, but they love each other deeply.”

According to the source, West is the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star’s “best friend and soulmate” — and indeed, the mother of two spent much of her time at her husband’s side while he was in the hospital.

Now, the rapper is continuing his recovery, and a source confirmed to PEOPLE on Wednesday that he’s home with his wife and their daughter North, 3, and son Saint, who turns 1 on Monday.

“He seems okay and happy to be home,” said the source, who added that West “will continue to receive treatment and help with how to cope with stress.”

Added the source: “He needs to learn how to better balance his work and family life.”
