    If you are suffering from psychological trauma following a close physical combat situation, read this book:

    "On Combat"
    By Lt. Col. Dave Grossman with Loren Christenson
    http://www.killology.com/book_oncombat_summary.htm

    If that doesn't hold you, try this one next:

    "Psychological Effects of Combat"
    By Dave Grossman and Bruce K. Siddle
    Academic Press, 2000
    http://www.killology.com/article_psychological.htm

    Then if you want, you can do some research into treatment of PTSD through the process of EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing). http://www.fsu.edu/~trauma/a1v5i4.htm

    After you have done this, you will understand the responses that you recieved here. You will know why we aren't as sensitive as you want us to be. You will know for sure if you are truly suffering from PTSD, or just going through the natural process of dealing with the after effects of an ass whipping. If you make it through those books, I'll be happy to discuss PTSD with you.

    Why? Let me explain. When I first started my job there were 3 officers total on the road in a city of over 7000. Now that may not seem bad to most standards but add the fact that the 2 officers that were working with me were usless, as tits on a bull, and there may be a problem. That's, let's see, over 7000 to 1 odds. I've wrestled with hopped up folks twice my size (5'3) with various weapons of choice. I had my ass whipped and whipped others. Usually by myself until someone who gave a sh!t got there to help me. It didn't happen often but sometimes 2 on 1. Why some may ask? Because somebody had to do it. I had my reasons. This is not isolated. I know at least a dozen other officers in this area who have done the same. Sh!t happens.
    Try and understand this. At this time, in my career, I view political retaliation worse than anything I've been involved in so far. There is no real protection, civil service or otherwise, to help avoid losing our jobs if we become targets except our reputations. To me, losing my career, and the ability to provide for my family, while trying to provide quality law enforcement, after this many years is stress to me.
    The incident you refer to is the stress that you experienced. I will not judge that. Not my place. However, comparing that to what other officers have experienced as stress may seem not as significant. An officer who has experienced, what they seem as, way more stress may find it difficult to understand the "more minor" incident that you unfortunately were involved in.
    Don't make light of your own incident but take it in stride when others may.

    I'm by no means an expert, but I have had some training both in critical incident/traumatic stress (Not all post traumatic stress is actually PTSD!), mental health, and CIT (Crisis Intervention). I can say that the consensus among EVERYONE who lectured on PTSD in those training seminars said the same thing...in order for PTSD to manifest, there MUST be a perceived threat of death or serious bodily injury. And not just broken bones type injuries, we are talking physical disfigurement, paralysis, maiming, etc.
