My uncle appreciates all that I do for him and wants what is best for me as well. (He also recognizes more than I do that if I don't take care of myself, I won't be in any condition to take care of him. I tend to think I'll have more time for me 'later'.)

Having been in your situation and lived to tell the tale, and having watched a childhood friend kill himself while caring for his elders, I'll warn you to be careful of that "later." You might want to drop by the Taking Care of Parents board if you haven't already.
