I find myself very restless as far as my financial situation and job are concerned.
What I need emotionally in a job is paramount to me and I know I’m not getting what I need. So the question is – what do I do about it?
I started this blog as a way to express my experience as an older woman who will more than likely live alone, as long as I can, has no savings, but does have fear about how that’s all going to play out.
My last post was 4 months ago. At that time, I was working part time and collecting Social Security. I decided to collect early as a reaction to fear. I can’t change that. In a later post, I’ll go into some detail on what I’ve learned about that.
But here I am, 4 months later and working full-time in accounting.
I like the regular paycheck. Of course I like health insurance. I enjoy my co-workers. I should be happy, but I am not and am very restless. I’m not one to be complacent. If I don’t like a situation, I get out of it. I’m proud of that. But as I get older, it’s much harder to change simply because of ageism in the work world. That’s a fact.
I’m strongly considering going back to part time. I’m 10 months away from Medicare. Can I hang in there for those 10 months?
The other issue is that the company I work for is in financial trouble. Getting out may not even be my choice! So for the moment, I’ll ponder the options.
