Retired at 61 because of health. after 2 years I continue to go down hill.
I drove cross country truck for 38 years. At 61 I had to go on insulin so by law I could no longer drive.
I have 80 acres and many things to do. From the time I quit work, I have been going down hill.
My feet are so bad now I can hardly walk because of diabetes. I can't close my hand with out pain and can't make a fist. My knees have gone bad and I have gained 70 lbs. because of such pain doing anything just wears me out.
The things I used to like I don't do because they wear me out. Hunting, fishing, gardening and raising animals.
So I sit at this computer look out the window and feel more depressed and wishing I would die.
I thought when I retired I would be hunting, fishing and raising large gardens and lots of animals, but now I just sit and wait.
