I am 56 years old with high blood pressure and also have sezure issues and CP. Going into closer to my 60s I want to learn a better way of dealing with stress and try to eat healthy. It's hard but I have faith that I can do this. Deannie

I handle stress by walking my dog and doing 30mins on my recumbent bike:) I also have a wonderful husband and great friends to help:)

I'm 56 and fortunate to be very healthy, but still haven't gone through menopause (think I'm getting close). This week is bad for the hot flashes, because the weather is heating up, it's my daughter's graduation and lots of activities with family and friends. So, I have perimenopause, hot weather, stress, fatigue ... all of which trigger flashes for me. But, most of the time, mine haven't been too bad. I credit that to exercise and luck!
