I retired a couple months ago after working with the same company almost 38 years.
The job was very stressful and a lot of changes & the expectation on keeping up with work load was impossible.
So for these reasons I knew it was time to retire and I definitely have no regrets with my decision.
A friend of mine had made a comment not long before my retirement date , that retirement is not all it's cracked up to be and I thought " well that's negative"
I know now what she meant. This is all new and a transition that is going to take time.
What I miss is my co workers but I am keeping in touch and meeting for lunch 🍸, and have joined the Y and going to aquatic therapeutic classes.
( Have chronic low back pain and arthritis )
I agree it is important to keep busy, however, I am struggling with how I am feeling, kinda lost and depressed .
I have always had difficulty adjusting to change & in time hope that I get comfortable with this time in my life.
