Adjusting to Retirement is a struggle, I didn't think would happen.
by Sharon, New Zealand
Retired December 2019 along with my husband. All was great initially.
Traveling in RV as planned. Was meant to be for 5 months but because of Covid was 10 weeks. Had to come home for 6-week lockdown.
I then had a Stroke, disbelief, I felt healthy, very healthy always walked and did Yoga.
I am fortunate with my physical recovery but it has really hit me just how short life is. I think after reading some posts here I'm not only still adjusting to Retiring but thats been complicated by the Stroke.
I am now medicated for depression and have slight balance issues but I still want to feel fulfilled with life but at 66, I feel like I'm on a down hill slide.
How to change this mindset?
