I'm also "one of them" that had to medically retire at the age of 39. (currently 46) Hubby will retire in less than 3 yrs at the age of 52. I have to agree with whoever said inactivity breeds depression. I have found that I NEED to stay active.
I love to read and "cruise" the internet. Walking the german shepherd is right up there too. Church newsletter every 2 weeks. Managing the entire household while hubby works lots and lots of hrs towards his early retirement. Planning (dreaming) of all the trips we will take as soon as he is "out of there". Visiting the boys wherever they "land". One is in Germany, the other one heads out to college this fall. UW-Madison.
Spending lots of time with parents who are in their 80's. Enjoying the time and help I can give them. Being a caregiver to a sister who died of breast cancer. During that time I came to appreciate the fact that I was "retired". Before that I was not a happy camper about having to give up a job I loved and was good at.
Going out to dinner or breakfast with friends. Just this morning 12 of us got together for eats. Ages ranged from 25 to 58. Fun group!!
Well....you can see I could go on and on. Life is what you make it. I plan on making it worthwhile and fun!!!
