Thank you for your kind comments. The transition is surprisingly difficult. I miss Dad. And the love of my life also recently passed away and now I have no one to take of but myself and that feels selfish. I'm alone for the first time in my life. I quit my job because I was overworked there and overwhelmed by the grief and want time to grieve in peace and figure out how to live a new life. I'm only 55 and I want to work again in a few months. Trying not to let the media and economy scare me. Some blogs, articles, and comments are cruel about aging and working. I have to work for another 20 years, at least, so it seems like the right time to start over.

Condolences, Robert, on the sad loss of your father. How is the transition from caregiving to a "normal" life going for you? I wish you all the best. Allow yourself plenty of time to heal!
