I have had chronic depression for some years now, and since I’ve entered my golden years, I find my depression has worsened. These are the reasons:
1. In retirement I find nothing to look forward to.
2. I lack a sense of purpose and meaning.
3. I’m bored.
I have perhaps ten more years of productive life, and I will not spend it like this. Life should be meaningful, challenging and joyful. I am determined to resume full enjoyment of my life, but I need to figure out how to do that.
