Now the latest Retirement! In the past two weeks I have not had to spend those 8-10 hours a day by the computer.
My back feels better, when I went to see my mystical Thai magic man last week, he noticed a big improvement on how my total back muscles were feeling.
I had such a difficult time seeing myself retired. Even after 34+ years with the company, I still felt like a new babe in arms. I loved my job and still love the work that is involved. If I could have continued physically doing the computer work, I would have wanted to stay until I could no longer lift a finger to the keyboard.
Now, in some ways, I'm a bit smarter. Just as I am now smarter about not abusing my body physically, I realize that I have a Catch 22 situation.
- Work , continue to be in pain and just go around and around.
- Stop working, Retire and give this poor ole aching body time to heal.
Financially continuing to work would be the best course of action, but realistically and medically stepping down from what I have been doing for all these years was the right choice
