I am a 58 yr old nurse, no longer working. I would like to hear from people in my age group. I sometimes feel a little anxious about retiring early, leaving others behind still working.
Then on other days, I am glad I am not working, starting to enjoy my freedom. I also feel I have lost my identity.
I am working hard at building a new me, reading a little, exercising, spending time with family. I am feeling a bit more comfortable not working most days, but I have times when I miss the workplace.
Thank you so much for your website, you have helped me through this journey!
