I will take time to care for myself during this holiday season
Fearless Caregiver Manifesto
I will fearlessly care for my physical and emotional health as well as I care for my loved one’s,
I will recognize the signs of my own exhaustion and depression, and I will allow myself to take respite
breaks and to care for myself on a regular basis.

The Holidays are a time that bring lot of sentimentalism,
feelings and emotions and when you are a caregiver for a spouse
it becomes more emotional. So when I think of my wife, who has
terminal pancreatic cancer and I start to get emotional, I question
whether I am crying for myself or her. And even though we are
eventually going to lose her I thank God for having known her and
loved her and say to myself, "how many people can say they had
a beautiful marriage that lasted for 50 years?" That grounds me
and helps to put things in the proper prospective.
