Iím 68 retired 4 years .
Iíve spent a lot of energy creating a lifestyle of activities and people that interest me. Since retiring Iíve started new things
badminton and bridge which I play weekly. Also Iím a part-time University student studying global politics/economics. I read &
study a lot around these issues.. Iím absolutely thrilled to be learning & researching stuff even though some of it is distressing.
Iíve been diabetic for many years and on insulin for the last ten years. Iíve got a system of diet and insulin that keeps my blood
sugars low. Iíve spent a lot of energy creating a healthy lifestyle.
However despite a good deal of success I find retirement a challenge.I still find that I cannot have stimulating activities all the
time and sometimes Iím prone to retirement /old age angst (if there is such an expression!). I'm very interested in the
psychological aspects of retirement and exchanging notes with others on their experiences..
