Christmas is a normally stressful situation but as Cancer Caregivers it takes on an entirely new meaning. Hanging Christmas lights on your house seems frivolous compared to your loved ones health. We need to allow ourselves to release expectations of a ” perfect” holiday. Learn to enjoy a basic concept like sipping hot chocolate while listening to a Christmas carol on the radio. Instead of registering for a sweater post a “wish list” of home maintenance or doctor appointments someone can accompany you to on social media. Allow your friends & family to know what would really be appreciated this year. Allow them to LOVE you.
