The Difficulty Of Early Retirement

The longer you're out of pharmacy, the faster you lose your skills, and the sooner you're a has-been.

I've been out of pharmacy long enough now that I no longer receive the daily emails and phone calls from the temporary services and headhunters trying to exploit me in order to line their own pockets.

Either they've figured out that I'm not going to work for them, or they think I'm too old to keep up with all of the increasing demands placed upon pharmacists. Regardless, there is a point in time in which older pharmacists must accept the fact that they can't perform as well as their younger colleagues.

Although it's nice to be wanted, or to be in demand, I think my time has come to fully retire.
