Workplace Stress and Retirement
by Joe Parenti
I decided to read your post for a couple of reasons which I'm sure would not be as important to you as they are to me.
I am getting ready to retire, I am 62, will be 63 in March. I work for a municipality here in the Chicago area, I am just coming off of my 3rd surgery due to the job, meaning they were job related injuries. The manual labor does not fit my body any longer. The new administration is another reason I am making the move to retire.
With the new admin, the work force labors are in constant dispute with workers rights, after a talk with my family at last nights intervention, I have taken this fight to people that I shouldn't have, I have become a very short fused person.
I believe that retiring will lift some of that burden from me. Does this situation some familiar to you, did you go thru any of this before retiring.... I have to make this right....
