My plan was to work to at least 65 but job stress and anxiety became overwhelming with the company being acquired by a large Asian corporation...so many changes and expectations.
So, after 44 years, I exited earlier than planned at age 63. I am in good health, financially sound, and should have been able to transition to the next chapter of my life. Not so..... there is sooo much time and my mind has not been able to get over the loss of routine and identity.
It has only been just over a week and I have days of feeling lost and anxious.
I know I need to get out of this 'funk' and that I control the choices that need to be made..... just so much easier said than done.
