My name is Cathy and at just 46 years of age, I had to retire from my love of nursing and ironically, transition to becoming a recipient of care. This was because I am living with bipolar disorder and while it is well managed now, it wasn’t at the time. I also have osteoarthritis, high blood pressure, an underactive thyroid and since retirement, have become a stroke survivor.
