    PTSD article in Herald

    https://www.miamiherald.com/news/loc...236647813.html

    Pretty good article. After a career here, and all the nasty things Iíve seen or investigated, Iím surprised Iím not more screwed up. It makes me wonder though... can you get PTSD just from constant exposure to poor supervisors/administration? I kid you not, the only thing I worry about when I come to work is being subjected to more arrogant/condescending/micromanagement by people who donít have a clue. THATs what depresses me and makes me sit on the edge of the bed for 10 minutes when I wake up.

    Buddy, you need help. This infatuation with Stahl is pathetic. Go phone a friend.

    To the original poster, thank you for a reasonable post and not the crap that followed. Mental health in our profession is something weíve neglected for a long time. The days of just drinking with the squad are long gone and only lead down a bad path. If you feel you need to reach out then do so. While Iím not ready to go public I can assure you the process works. Iíve sought treatment for over a year and none of my brass knows at least not that I can tell. I havenít been messed with, kept from working schools or OT, or anything negative. Mine was just an accumulation of events that just piled on and lead me to seek help. Donít mess up your career or your family by self medicating or destructive behavior. Get the help and carry on.

    That was one of my issues. I had to leave a unit after I got into with the clique that took over. When I went to a new unit I was constantly looking over my shoulder worried I was going to piss someone off and get transferred. I would drive home and think of everything that I did/said and worry what I could get in trouble for. Sounds crazy but yeah. Itís what started me down my path. And I was one of the most competent investigators in the unit lol and here I am worried about getting booted. Iíve never been in some crazy shooting or anything but after 20+ years the deaths, the despair, etc takes a toll. Talking helps. To a friend, spouse, or a professional. Just donít keep it locked up inside until it ruins your life.

    PS please letís keep the union and other crap off this thread. This is a very serious topic and I donít want someone who needs help to read this and feel like they will be made fun of or something. It took me several years to seek help and my life is so much better. Iím a better spouse and parent to my kids.

    Stay strong brother, I for one am proud of you for fighting the demons. Some of us are well aware of the issues and are here for you. May God bless you and keep you safe and strong.
