Caregiver: Your difficulty smiling is certainly understood. Please do everything you can to get some social support. Check w/your local psychologists and hospitals to find a support group for caregivers or see a therapist for some supportive therapy. Check out social service agencies for some caregivers to give you a break now and then. All of this will pay off even though it takes some effort now. Peace
