Depressed with husbands retirement
I am 57, I have a 16 year old daughter to raise. My adult daughter lives with us, she is handicapped and has no income and no resources. My adult son lives here temporarily, but he is not a problem and is working after college.
My husband lost his job three years ago. I am not doing so well since he started a trucking business. There is no routine, no stability in his income. I feel depressed a lot and am sick often. I have low energy, and some anxiety problems. I am not happy. I live in the country and feel isolated.
If this is retirement I do not like it. I haven't worked in 12 years and feel sick so much I doubt I could work. This has been a very deprestsing time in my life. I live several miles outside of a small town and there isn't much social life. It takes some getting used to.
