    Well....The police cancelled the hearing because the Major caught wind that i had PTSD as a result of police work. The Major went straight to the Chief of police and told him what was going on with me. The chief cancelled the Hearing and said we are not putting him through that....saved by the major and Chief of police.

    Thank you. I have nearly 20 years on the job. I ended up getting lucky with my Med retirement because here in North Carolina i will retire with 25 years and get that pay. It's a special thing the State does when you have nearly 20 years but going out on Med Ret.

    Have you got a hobby?

    Weird as that might sound, when you suddenly find yourself with nothing but time to think. Finding something positive to fill the days with, will make a huge difference. And help keep the ghosts at bay.

    Best of luck. Glad to know the good guys get to win sometimes.

    And of course, thanks for your service.
