I’m just going to tag @Kuching who may have some tips for you. Hopefully others will also give you tips.
This is a link from cancer.ca on Taking care of you: the caregiver for you to read through and choose what fits for you.
Thank you for your kind words, it's very appreciated. I am definitely as selfish as this may come off looking after me first cause I need to survive just as much as anyone else. I am very good with checking and chatting to make sure everything is OK

Thanks for being here with us.
