My Retirement story
I was forced into retirement, but had been thinking about it anyway when it happened.
At first, I was glad to be free from a difficult employer. Seems to me that as an older person 62 yrs. old, I find myself an undesirable employment candidate.
I have tried to volunteer, but I find that the volunteering I have done has been for good organizations that want you to do what they don't want to do. I wonder why they think I would want to do what they don't care to do?
Regardless, I am also prone to depression and anxiety, so I struggle with those things as well. Being a somewhat shy person doesn't help.
I would like to connect with others. I do find that routine helps and keeping up the house and tasks helps somewhat.
On a positive note, I planned well for retirement, so I don't have financial worries.
