Hey y'all! I'm looking for an opportunity to give back- no, not in a formal way- no, I'm not ready for that yet. A friend of mine told me to go into education, however I feel I've been enjoying my well-earned time off these days. I've been retired for a few years now, travelin' around and havin' my fun. I'm wondering though, if there's still something that I could do, that's a little less formal, but still meaningful. 

Back when my hair wasn't the silvery shining symbol of wisdom that it is now, I used to post on here regularly. I used to go here for help.  But I don't know if it is what it used to be.  And I'm wondering if y'all would take me seriously now anyways, given y'all don't know who I am and I'm not established on here anymore. Quite frankly I'm not sure even if you did it would matter.  I figure I don't want to waste anyone's time, much less my own. Forgive me if all this sounds silly, I suppose I'm just dealing with my retirement and wantin' make good use of what time the good Lord still gives me. Thanks y'all for reading, lookin' forward to your thoughts!

Hello and Welcome back!

My take on what you are asking: should you come back and post?

My answer: YES!!  Come to General Nursing, Nursing Student Assistance, and whatever specialties you have tucked under your formidable belt of experience.  Please share your thoughts and experience! 

And, come to the Daily Diary in the Lounge (the "blue side," "BreakRoom," or off-topic area), and post what you are doing in your retirement, share your thoughts there!

What do you mean by "no, not in a formal way"...do you mean that you don't want a paying job, if not there is always volunteering.
