I don't see you as a whining ingrate at all! 35 years of doing that kind of service work must have been rewarding, but draining. And doing more of that kind of work as a volunteer I can imagine is draining also. Maybe you need to do something entirely selfish. something only for you and your benefit. I don't know what - depends on your interests. Exercise, art, bridge club, some adult excursion group?

I'm sorry about your memory and I hope it stabilizes. I have a friend who complains about her memory all the time and, while I have seen some small lapses over the last few years, I am really convinced that retiring and not really doing anything with her time has made her deteriorate and become hyper-vigilant about every little ache, pain, or memory lapse.

I understand your need to retire. I hope you can find something to do that is fun or interesting and doesn't just worsen your sense of compassion fatigue.
