I am 64 and retired. I have been a foster.parent for 33 years, I only take newborn infants. It is like raising a child for their first year over and over again.
I decided to retire because as the babies stay longer and longer, physically I am tired. I haven't taken a baby for 6 months. And I feel terrible.
I have no motivation at all... I sleep late and I have either had a cold or some kind of virus ever since. I don't feel like doing anything..nothing makes me feel good.
My husband has not retired yet and I don't know if he ever will ,He is self employed. I have 5 kids 7 grandkids and 2 great grandkids.
But I feel old and useless.
