Welcome aboard, girl! Come 'visit' with us any time!
I myself have some 'hidden' health issues, so I understand a little of how much 'fun' that is, especailly when you have to care a disabled spouse or family member. And I'm 33 (turn 34 in a few weeks) & think I'm starting the peri- meno thing myself.
Yes, I think it is okay if you don't do a whole lot sometimes. Calming down, relaxing, BREATHING, alll very important, especailly for us caregivers....some of us sometimes take on more than we can handle (and sometimes that's what life throwas at us)...yes, stepping back, relaxing, taking things one step at a time, is perfectly fine.
It can be very easy to try to jump into a new healthy eating lifestyle & get overwhelmed. And to get overwhelmed by this wonderful site. If you need to, just make one or two lifestyle changes at a time... work on those for a while, then when you're ready to start working on something else, go for it. And when life gets stressful, you may have to go back to square one for a bit....that's okay, just as long as you don't quit! You can do it!
