Grief and loss
by Jennifer Donovan
Three years retired and hating every minute of it. Working with a therapist, I've finally realized that what I am dealing with - or not dealing with - is loss and grief.
I've lost my husband, I've lost my brother, I've lost my life's work and I've lost my Health. I've lost my positive attitude, and I've lost all hope.
Now comes the really hard work - learning to accept these losses and find new ways to think and feel about myself and my life.
Wish me well on this oh-so-difficult journey.
