Retired because of anxiety disability
I worked at a CPA firm for 20 years and 8 years at another before that. i am 62 1/2 About 3 years ago I started to feel burned out.
About 2 years ago it really hit me. The anxiety and depression. I struggled through it the past two years but needed to take time off for short term disability.
I still had the anxiety and depression, was on anxiety depression meds which didn't help. Tried working part time there but I still felt anxiety coming into the office and doing the work... from not wanting to do public accounting anymore, lack of motivation, making mistakes I normally would never make.
Finally decided I had it and retired because of my anxiety disability caused by work. I have been retired about a month and half.
It's been up and down searching for new interests but still no desire to get back even PT into the field. I feel wiped just thinking about it.
