Retired after 35 years in law enforcement
While I am sorry to hear of the anxiety and depression that others have experienced, it's good to know that I am not alone.
After an active 35 year career spanning operations to management, I retired thinking that I was ready.
The feelings of anxiety I have suggests that I was not.
I have a number of interests but just cannot muster the motivation to pursue anything yet.
Like some of the others I feel a loss of identity, status and value.
One of the things I am doing to try to cope is to research the experience and advice of others.
Best wishes to my fellow retirees. Hope it gets better soon.
