In brief: Various

My medical colleagues who have retired fall into two groups.
The first were defined by their careers and when they leave it find a great void in their life and are commonly unhappy. The other group either disliked what they were doing, or more commonly have something important to retire to such as charity work, travel, another job, serious hobbies. These are happy people.
