Did not see this coming
I retired, along with my wife of 35 years, after 45 years of working. Some time in the military during the Vietnam War and the rest as the CEO of a major trade association in the Washington, DC area.
Did not expect this much disassociation or being cut off from the rest of the world or this much anxiety/depression.
Of course sitting around the house in the dead of winter watching TV is awful.
I would like to hear stories from others who have made the transition and went through this which was unexpected. Most of my career was in the military/security. law enforcement areas.
