    Caregivers

    Anyone else take care of a sick family member? I feel like I've done this with my whole family. I also feel like I don't do as much as I should. I've been making myself sick over some situations. Please note that I am also ill, but you never really have a choice. Family takes care of family.

    Being a long-term caregiver is wearing on the body and emotions. Don't beat yourself up about not doing enough. You are doing more than others, and that is significant and commendable. Don't forget that you need to take care of *you* as well in this process. Are there any local-county-state agencies that can offer some support? Or perhaps other support groups where you can get additional information about such resources? If you have some time, perhaps you can do some online searches. Wish I could be of more assistance - if nothing else, know that you are appreciated.
    Be Happy Now.

    I couldn't have said it better myself. Thinking of you.
    Keep your hands to yourself, leave other people's things alone, and be kind to one another.

    How are you? I am hoping things are getting better.

    Haven't heard from you lately, hope things are going well.
