Wendy, You’re a Lifesaver!
I found Wendy’s retirement coaching website completely by accident shortly after retiring last year. I was feeling suicidal and completely lost. I was reading all the negative stories I could find on the internet about the downside of retiring.
I kept thinking oh no what have I done? Why did I retire? Wendy reached out to me and encouraged me to get help. I’m happy to say I did get help and I’m so much better today. I couldn’t keep feeling sorry for myself.
My husband threatened to leave if I kept wallowing in self pity. It’s been an uphill struggle but I’m doing 90 % better now.
I’m taking a water colour painting class and piano lessons. I even revisited my love of figure skating last year- I can still skate!
I thank Wendy and others here for sharing their stories. As Wendy says “do something, anything!” Thanks
