This Week's Carenote - 2/10/10

I have a wife with a rare disease called Behcet's. She is quite ill most of the time. I am looking for suggestions to avoid caregiver burnout and I have been selected as a husband and caregiver of a Behcet's patient to speak on the subject during The Behcet's Conference this April in Orlando Florida. So I am asking for help with information and sources for information to assist in my endeavor.

I belong to a Caregivers group on Yahoo. http://health.groups.yahoo.com/group/Cancercaregiversrus/ I think having someone to talk to is very goog for support. I think living every day, one day at a time is important, and in every day find some time that you can devote to yourself. My wife has been fighting ULMS for four years so I'm learning to pace myself so as not to get burnd out. frogjump53@yahoo.com

Please visit the Well Spouse Assn. (WSA) at www.wellspouse.org, a not-for-profit, nat'l/int'l organization offering peer-to-peer emotional support for spousal caregivers. WSA offers so much support and friendship - take it from another "well spouse". I wish you the best.
