Anxiety before retirement
by Joe Parenti
I have seen that there are only a few posts about anxiety before retirement. I have another one..
I am 62, going to be 63 in March. I work for a municipality in the suburbs of Chicago. I am coming off of my 3rd surgery from a work related injury, one of my reasons for retiring. I have been employed there for 27 years, this May.
I am posting this because I seek some help, trying to find out if this anger I have is just due to retiring. My family and I had an "intervention" last night, I truly thank them for that.
I believe that the anger that is triggered at the drop of a hat, is mostly job related. Since the new administration has taken over, we as the the workers have to put a lot of our effort in to taking defense on just getting what is rightfully ours; i.e.vacation time, sick pay etc...
Really what I am posting about is help to see if anyone has gone through something that has had something similar happen to them...
Wendy: Whoops.. Joe, I just answered you here: workplace stress and retirement. Thats ok, you'll get feedback both places...
