A big part of the dealing with this disease is attitude. Although difficult at times(very brief times hopefully) one can get negative but it's best to stay positive and enjoy Life together rather than focusing on the half empty life that has past. Half and half may not be the best expression in terms of real proportions but you know what I mean :)
Yes, make sure to take time for yourself. When my wife was going thru chemo and radiation treatment 5 days a week, her and I stayed in a hotel room and I took care of her all week. On the weekends, my son took over 80% of the care. That gave me a good break and chance to catch up on sleep and get my mind on other things.
I work from my home for a computer company and this is also a good diversion. My company is very flexible and I end up working lots of odd hours, basically around my wife's needs but again, continuing to work when I can helps get my mind on different things.
B-complex, I have used B50 complex from Walmart for years to help with stress and keep me going. It does help !
