It was just an ordinary weekday. I had just finished lunch and the baby was napping. I was looking out of my window when the phone rang. It was the school ... Cole's eye was swollen shut.
We were in the room at Urgent Care, waiting for the doctor to come in. The door opened and it was Daddy!!!! As the kids hugged his neck and squeals of excitement echoed through the hallways, I immediately noticed that he didn't look well. His face was flushed and his eyes were blood shot. >>>>>>>> I've attached the link that will take you to my website... blog... a place that is a combination of my previous website and my OG blog I had years ago.
Don't bother peeking around the site just yet... It's still in the making and I have SO many entires to plug in. But for now, if you'd like to come into this crazy world of ours for even just a few minutes, you officially have the invite. Please, keep in mind while reading this patiucular entry - that it's my interpretation. This is my version of what happened when Paul went to his watch commander and said he was "struggling and needed help."
This is my version.
If you or anyone you know struggles with PTSD or depression, realizing the problem is the first step but asking for help is the hardest part. Your health and your life matter! You matter enough to get the help you deserve. And if it's someone you know, there are signs and symptoms to watch out for. First Responders see horrific things everyday. They should not be expected in any way, shape or form, to ever become immune to the things they see. Hero's to most... but they are still husbands, fathers, sons, brothers, Mommas, sisters, daughters, ect. They are human beings and they deserve to learn coping mechanisms to have to healthy, happy lives at home and outside of their job.
