Does your ability to earn a living, affect your mental health?
I'm in my 60's, and I have enough money to "get by," but that's about it. If I wanted to spend the rest of my life in a retirement home, the nicest ones are the most expensive, and I think I would be likely to run out of money before I died.
And I have been diagnosed with Asperger's Syndrome, which seems to make any job difficult for me, but that's because I picked out jobs that I was just not suited for, and ignored the ones that emphasized my pluses that I have going for me.
I find that today's jobs are geared toward computing, and unfortunately when I went to college, computing wasn't seen as a job of the future. At least not by me it wasn't. So I got a degree that is in a field that I don't think I would enjoy working in.
So now I see where the jobs are, and I'm not trained for them. I didn't move to Rochester to just sit around writing questions to Mayo doctors, and wait until death chooses me. LOL.
