Dear Morning Glory,
Welcome to Beyond Blue and well done for reaching out.
I am curious as to how long you have been retired for, and if, in your planning for retirement, that you perhaps have not really thought about what to do with your time? I suppose I am wondering what may be contributing to this bleak feeling you have.
I only ask because even though I am quite some way from retirement myself, (I turn 50 next year) I do think about what I would do with my time once I no longer have a job to go to. I have several hobbies, for example, and I think 'Gosh, retirement is going to mean I can do so much more of what I love to do, rather than what I have to do!'
Have you experienced a change in your physical health? Or is it perhaps too much idle time on your hands? Maybe it will help to expand a little on what you feel may have, or be contributing to your feelings?
Anyway, just want you to know that we are here for you if you want to talk some more about what is going of for you. Take care. xo
