What I've found helpful, since I once had those feelings, is to construct an approximate budget of yearly expenses, then add up all sources of income: subtract one from the other and you'll have a good idea of either income shortfall or surplus. In the first case, a part-time job would possibly make up the deficit and also give you a sense of having a paycheck, however small.
If there's a surplus, take heart: in either case, it might help to look upon your S.S. and dividend checks, etc. as "pay" for all those years of hard work.
And, above all, relax and find better things to concentrate on - you deserve it!!
