One reason Cobain found fame stressful was because it rubbed against his punk ethos and fans were giving him an elevated sense of importance that he felt he didn't deserve or have.
Cobain dealt with stress by withdrawing himself. In an interview he says "just to survive lately, I've become a lot more withdrawn from the band... after the show I go straight to the hotel room and go to sleep.
