I'm am a retired, firefighter/emt. Due to an injury in 2021, I had to give it up. It has been a tough transition for me, but I'm doing better now. Over the years of seeing many types of trauma and tragic events, a toll was taken on my mental health. I self medicated and dealt with many things the wrong way. After a while, my mind became an unstable nightmare. I became suicidal and emotionally detached from life. With the help of doctors, family and friends, I was able to quiet the demons that were hunting me. I can proudly say that my demons are behind me. Just know that you are NOT alone. There are many ways to seek help. I am living proof!
