Sun will come out tomorrow ...
by Carmen Y
I'm retired and for the first six months, it was horrible. Depressed, crying, suicidal, heartbroken, lonely, angry, anxiety ... you name it, I experienced it BUT I did not want to feel this way.
At first I would take long walks, then I would take a bucket and pick and pick up the litter people threw on the side of the road. I volunteer at my church (watering the plants for one ....), go to the gym at least 3x a week. Did some things around the house. BUT the one thing I do miss is fellowship...
Getting together with friends (maybe once in a while for breakfast, go see a movie ... things like that) BUT the problem is that everybody that I know is working and the few that are retired don't want to or can't.
I love the bike riding, bowl, knit, board-games, travel, talk, catch a movie, mini-golf, tennis, gym ... I am not a couch potato person.
