But I continue to worry about the things that could go wrong, especially the cost of health care.

I've only had one job in my life that I actually liked--teaching at a university. There is actually a chance I could do that again, although I would only want to do it part time. Well, actually I don't want to work at all, but maybe it would be helpful to have a little more money to either take care of the cost of health care, and if I don't need it, then I could improve my standard of living to include more luxuries.

I can't answer your question since I still have 7-10 years to go before RE but I would not worry if I were you. If the COL causes you to teach again in order to keep up financially, I envy those who get to sit in your classes after reading your well written posts over the past few years. You obviously have a gift of imparting knowledge to others.
