Absolutely, Anne! Second guessing ourselves when we did the best we could with what we had is not only senseless, it's self-defeating and can lead to depression and other illnesses. We have to have self-compassion as well as compassion for others.

It's important for caregivers to be as prepared for making these tough decisions as possible, working with other family members. Then, once the decision is made, try not to second-guess, and accept that one is doing the best one can.
