Retired for One Year
(Toronto, Ontario, Canada)
I retired a year ago (I'm now 57) due to ill health. I haven't yet gotten to that zen retirement state that everyone seems to talk about. This is hard!
I've been working on my health issues, but can't seem to get ahead-just when I think something's been dealt with, my body gives me something else!
My husband is still working so I find myself alone at home quite a bit. People always say to get out and socialize, but I never know if I can plan something or if I'll be feeling up to it. I tried a volunteer office position but didn't enjoy it-it felt too much like busy-work and not fulfilling.
Does anyone have any advice for me? I suffer from anxiety and depression as well as some physical issues.
