I retired in 2018 age 66. Biggest mistake of my life. Retirement sucks.
I wake up every morning asking myself what the hell do I do today. I spread the housework out over an entire week just so I have something to do each day. Kitchen on Monday, DR on Tuesday, etc. I am still left with hours and hours of nothing to do.
Get a hobby people tell me. I'm not interested in anything. I don't care about people so forget about reading to the elderly. Couldn't stand working with animals as it would depress me too much. Knitting, pottery, book club, work at home (surveys! yeuk - I hate these calls), painting, crafts - forget it. None of this interests me.
I am so ready to die! I hope and pray I get cancer or something so I know that the agony of being bored will be over soon.
I don't know how people enjoy retirement. It's the worst time of my life.
