This retired thing is complicated. Like the cabin on the lake is supposed to be a place you want to go. But the "cabin" which is my townhouse home in suburban DC is getting to me. I need to make a tremendous effort to get to see even what's around me.
Which explains why I'm taking an hour on mass transit to get to a medical center where I can volunteer by helping folks with the patient portal there. I see people I would not otherwise see, I get to be helpful, and I get a global feel for how this electronic patient record thing is going.
Anyway, that's one approach to cabin fever. Another is to actively search around my community for stuff that's interesting, and not computer-based. That is, where the interesting part is a meeting or activity is outside the house, and, preferably, outdoors altogether.
Got to work on that.
