Stuck in a rut
I retired in 2015 and could not wait to get out after 45 years of the same old same old.
Lost the mother of my four kids in the 90’s and got all of them through college. I was a “star”. Now it was my turn to enjoy what was left.
Initially life was great. I planned good enough financially but I was and am not prepared mentally. I’ve been dealing with anxiety and depression mostly over the last few years.
Couldn’t put a name or a reason for it until I stumbled over this website last night. It’s becoming clear to me that retirement, if not all of the reason, it definitely has a lot to do with it.
My life has no purpose at this time and what’s scarier is there is nothing that I want to do. Every day runs into each other and life has become mundane.
I plan on talking to a new therapist in hopes he can help me figure this out. Ultimately it comes back to me.
Boy am I stuck.
