Have you ever made a significant career change?
There is definitely a theme in my questions:
Sorry about that, but you folks have provided some very helpful advice and, most importantly, allowed me to "bend your ears" with my thoughts and concerns. Now that I've been retired almost eight months, I am working on plans to move forward with a different career.
For some background, I have a B.S. in Psychology and always planned to become a clinical psychologist. (I used to be smart, but then I had kids.) Instead, I stumbled into HR work and just retired after 33 years of that. Not because I wanted to retire.
