Anxiety ridden after retirement
I've been retired 2 months now after running my own business for 48 years.
I used to be a happy positive person but I am finding myself so immersed in FB and the negativity associated with our current government. Not to get into anything political here, but I am truly worried about clean air and clean water, climate change and other existential problems and I feel frustrated, angry and sometimes hopeless, certainly depressed at the global issues facing our world.
I have no family am a single 66 year old lady and after my year of doing nothing, will re engage myself into more activity.
I have GERD and asthma and osteoporosis. The asthma has been pretty bad the last few months (since retirement). My dr. Said that I have more time now, so I notice the symptoms more. He also said asthma is exacerbated by major life changes too. Like retirement.
Who Am I now that I am retired? Day by day for me.....
