Caregivers need to periodically evaluate their own lives

We keep putting one foot in front of the other, day after day. We do what is in front of us, to the best of our ability. And time goes by. Sometimes, as time slips away day by day, we live our life so close to our caregiving that we can't, as the old saying goes, see the forest for the trees. We don't notice our stress levels. We don't notice our failing energy. We don't notice our lack of enthusiasm for life.
