Well, back again. Been almost 10 years since I left. A few will remember me, but not many. I guess my fifteen minutes of fame on ATS was a post entitled something like "how to get along with the police". I was a cop then and it made for some spirited conversation.

What a difference a decade makes. Sixty two years old now, obviously not a cop any longer. As a matter of fact I was forced to resign under duress for a false accusation involving crashing the local network. Not true, but you only have my word on that. So much has happened. My wife of 12 years committed suicide last year and I'm still trying to wrap my head around that. So I'm hear for some much needed distraction, to learn, to share, to argue when I feel the need, and trust me, I don't feel the need much anymore. Tragedy will change your entire perception of life and what is and what's not important.

So, let the games begin.

I would like to change my password so if someone could point me in the right direction on that it would be appreciated.

Welcome back, See.
We suck at a lot of things here, but we're usually pretty good at rallying around our ATS mates when they've been through the wringer---sorry to hear that you've been through it to that degree. And HEY, I do remember that thread and it was a good one!

Dealing with cops, understanding your rights,.... by a cop.

Looking forward to seeing you around the boards again.

Yep, that was it, I couldn't remember the title. I appreciate the kind words. I'll be around.

Welcome back.

Terrible news on your end. And am very sorry for your loss.

Most of us still here are good people.

If you need an ear...or eyeball to read some venting, drop me a line.
I’m here every day.
Literally...every single day...often for hours upon hours at a time...every single day of the calendar year...the Julian calendar to be exact.
So that equals out to 10.8 minutes longer than most people.

Wow, and I thought that I spent too much time online. It's my distraction, not the healthiest. Thanks for the words man. I may take you up on it sometime.

Please do.
Im also in the market for someone to talk to at times.
More like a mutual understanding of hardships.

I have PTSD.
Theres a lot of garbage that I keep bottled up...often to long without venting.
And talking about it, honestly helps.
Lately I’ve been finding my mind wandering during conversations at work or at home, about some of the stuff I’ve seen, in what I call my “previous life”
Don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying I remember a past life or anything.
More like I see myself as a different person now, than who I was 10 years or so back.

Anyway,
Talking helps, and I can relate to what you are going through.
I’ve lost 14 good, close to the heart, friends to suicide.
Your not alone my friend.
