Retired, depressed, no reason to get up
(Pleasant Hill, IL)
I’ve been retired for a year. I worked 35 years as an advertising designer/illustrator.
When my husband retired 6 mos. ago we moved to a small town where he has lots of hunting buddies. I thought it would be a good break from the city and the deadline job I was in. Now I find I have no reason to even get up in the morning.
He’s always out with the guys for coffee every morning. The only people I know are at church and I really haven’t been included in any groups outside of worship time and Bible study.
I’ve looked for volunteer work but there is none in this little town. I am on antidepressants and barely staying afloat in life.
I feel very un-needed.
