    Did pretty good last week but Friday I found out that an old (police) partner was killed in a car accident after work. She was a good friend. It's kinda different (a partner Vs friend), maybe more like family. After I found out about Connie being killed I had a scheduled Psyc. visit. All I could do was rant about how the PD is screwing me around, Connie being killed, About friends being Killed or eating a bullet. God I just want a break.

    Hey Terry, a big pat on the back for you seeking the psych help at this difficult time for you! Avail yourself to the Department Chaplain or whoever you feel most comfortable with. And you very well may want to discuss with them the option of taking some additional days off to get a break.

    Day before yesterday we had a huge HUGE funeral for a policeman who was shot. One thing that struck me was not only how close this family in blue was with eachother, but the fact that even during the funeral many of his co-workers still had to be on duty. The city still needed protection and assistance, these folks have to put their feelings aside long enough to concentrate on their job.

    Your anger at the PD is understandable. Life isn't fair. I hope you find this place to be another resource for you to vent.
    It's going to be difficult, but it WILL be ok.

    Just got a call a bit ago to go back to work. I've been off work for over a year without pay. Battles with the city have taken a toll. I have a disability retirement pending (seizures as a result of head injuries) which will likely not happen. Now some in the PD want me to apply for a PTSD retirement. Gaggles of IDOTS. I don't know how I feel about going back to work. Not afraid of the bad guys, ironicly thats where I feel the most in control. Just think I my be afraid of the bad/sad things I'll see and having a seizure, flashbacks and such. Wish me luck ya'll.
