Husband Retired: Heading for nervous breakdown
by Anne, Rochester
I've been retired for over 10 years and have gotten used to having my days to myself.
My husband is newly retired and is making me nuts wanting to know where I'm going and how long I'll be gone, criticizing my housekeeping skills, and generally making me feel uneasy.
We've been married over 50 years so I'm pretty used to handling his idiosyncrasies, but I'm losing my patience. He's a really good guy and worked for the same place over 40 years so I know this is hard for him as it was tied to his identity.
I feel better just being able to write about this and will just pray for patience.
