I hate being retired, now that husband retired
by Linda Ohio
I retired at 64 yrs of age, in 2018.
Got to enjoy it for a year and a half, until my husband retired. Now it is pretty hellish. He wants to sit in the house and control the remote and watch things I have no interest in. Our house is very small about 1200 square feet.
You really can't get away from yourself, he does not want me to leave the house, I have no friends, just a sister, and he is jealous of anytime I spend away, at all. Then Covid hit and he is absolutely paranoid about it.
I can't go to the store or anywhere without him. If I was younger I would leave, but entrenched too much, dogs, farm animals, grandkids etc. after 27 years together, 2nd marriage, which is a whole other story.
I hate my life. Hopefully Covid will end and I am going to go back to work.
