Just wasn’t ready for retirement
I retired two months ago at age 55 after 32 years with the same company. I was nervous about retiring, but was very stressed in my job, and so I retired.
I have a medium pension and a 401k savings. The day I retired I had an uneasy feeling, and it has gotten worse each day. I thought I was comfortable with what I saved, but now I also am terrified to spend money. I have such anxiety that I can hardly think straight. I feel I didn’t build a big enough cushion into my savings plan.
I regret now that I retired but no going back now. If I can get my anxiety controlled so I can think straight, I feel I need to get another job, but am afraid I will never find a decent job being 55.
