Retirement: I think he's having a breakdown...
My husband was forceably retired 1.5 years ago at the age of 64. He worked for the same company all his career. Now, he builds his days around me.
He never made plans for a social life after retirement. He thought he had friends from work, only to discover they have no interest hanging out with him.
It is a real battle trying to get some alone time without him in the house. In fact, he seems terrified at the thought of leaving the house. I am wondering if this is fear or dementia? I try to give him ideas how to spend his time, but he poo-them.
Again, it always has to be the two of us, never just him venturing out alone. God help me.
