Not so happy... husband forced into retirement.
My husband was forced into retirement 4 yrs ago. And when he called me at home to tell me. I went into a full-blown panic attack.
He actually retired 2 years before his actual retirement. And I knew exactly what was going to happen when he did retire. Absolutely positively NOTHING, And he has done nothing since he retired.
He’s like having a senior teenager whom I have to ask for everything I get. He never picks anything up or puts anything away so therefore he can’t find or remember anything. It’s ridiculous! I get so frustrated!
I’m an artist and a doer so I’m always working on projects.
He sleeps until noon and then stares at his phone all day, He has zero interests, no hobbies, no future plans to get off the couch and do anything.
I’ve tried carefully to approach his lack of ambition to see if we could even talk about it. But he shuts me down.
I need help in understanding and or accepting that the man I loved so deeply before::: has now completely RETIRED from life..
