Depressed but then perhaps always was...
by Thumper - London UK
I am in UK. I took retirement at 55 as job was a stressful and though well paid, no morale or support from managers and felt very lonely.
I am now fed up as my confidence has gone and my low self esteem that I hid well in job has manifested.
If I had known I would of felt like this I would of stayed but then my rational thought tells me that perhaps if this had hit later ie MH issues then I would not be on therapy and medication to get well.
I guess its fear of unknown and for me as my partner is moving out of London, I will be going with him, so its double whammy of fear of unknown and existance.
