No need to feel sorry for us, I retired early by choice. Could have worked another 10 years and may or may not have seen any difference in my 401K.
After the crash of 2007, co-workers were being fired right and left. I worked in a constant state of fear and extra workload.
I decided my sanity was more important then more money. I called in sick one day and never went back.
I'm not well off or any where near it, but at least I'm doing what I really want to do.
