Early Disability Retirement at 50
I just went out on disability retirement with a shoulder injury due to 22 years of delivering mail.
I'll be 50 this year.. I am so miserable ..had to get put on anti depressants..seeing counselors.. everybody can't wait to get out of the post office and here I've turned into a depressed..lonely..bored..feel worthless person with no purpose.. I totally get how everyone feels.
I can get another job in the private sector and keep my retirement but I've lost who I was to even get out and look.. I can't function . that place was my home away from home for a long time.. this has to be the worst thing I've been through..
Hopefully I'll get through this transition soon..its been almost 2 months.
