Never Seen My Husband in Such a State
I am totally stressed out because my husband who recently retired at 60 but still works as a consultant, is having anxiety attacks. We have moved to an apartment in a new community and were supposed to build a retirement house on a piece of waterfront land we bought years ago.
But now I don't think either he or I are up to this project. Meanwhile I am missing my kids who are about an hour away.
We have been looking at already built houses as an alternative a bit closer to the kids, but my husband is still drawn to the old project. Meanwhile I just want a house to live in and get on with my life.
It is as if he is a stuck record, unable to decide either way.Wendy
If he just retired, my guess is that he is too new into retirement.. so many have a hard "transition" period. Your husband is still in transition and then to move and make major life decisions, when he hasn't quite figured out WHO he is in retirement, and what to do all day..
is a bit much.
Let's hope some other retirees chime in here to support you both!
