I retired three months ago from health care. I worked in a large well known hospital, performed hands on care with patients and collaborated with surgeons, cardiologists, a wide plethora of health care colleagues.
I moved to another state and love the new world I live in. However, I have felt increasingly anxious, feeling as though I need "to do" something, but conflicted because I am retired and do not "need" to do anything.
I feel caught on this never ending mental, emotional merry go round and my BP has gone up due to the stress.
Sometimes I sleep well, mostly I wake up feeling tense.
