Ravenwoodglass , you , and I have a lot in common. Im in my 50s too. Job security is an issue at our age. I had to quit my good paying job (nurse) in 2010 due to brain fog , fatigue, etc. two years ago I worked as a housekeeper 2 days a week . It was all I could handle. I did that for a year. Not working now due to selling house and moving plans.
The bright side is we are getting closer to 62 and could retire on soc sec. I have a very small 401 k type account. But I still want to work part time.
Anyway, stop getting glutened. You deserve to feel good.
