Invisible Wounds:: The emotional journey of a police officers battle with PTSD

Did you ever ask yourself what happens to a police officer's mind after seeing, 1-2-3 or more fatal motor vehicle accidents?, 4-5-6 or more suicides by gunshot? suicides by hangings, overdoses? Or maybe what happens to a police officer's mind when confronted with a violent person?, attending dozens and dozens of domestic violence incidents?, Being threatened by a person with a knife? a gun? This book explains how a shy small town boy's mental health changed as he progressed into his policing career. The author analyzes his career path of how he gradually changed during his career as a police officer confronting all of the types of calls mentioned above amongst others. That his changes to his mental health were so subtle that he didn't notice of the damages done to his mental health until it was almost too late. The author writes about how he came out of the dark place he was in for years and how he still today, successfully manages the symptoms/triggers of PTSD/OSI. This book will resonate with many other retired and serving officers as well as other first responders, correctional service officers and military. This book also will educate family members of police officers as well as people of the general public of what happens to a police officer's mind during a career based from his personal experiences and not from a medical point of view.
