When I took the assessment I was sure of two things. I would not see much stress in my life (after all it was 30 years ago I was a cop) and therefore I would not need any follow-up. I was wrong on both counts. After taking the assessment I recognized I did have bad dreams, many sleepless nights, and just felt ‘bad’ some of the time. Also, there are days my wife and kids want me to go to the neighborhood pool but I stay home because I feel so jumpy. The score clearly showed me there were issues from so many years ago still haunting me. I am now a believer. ALL police and first responders should have access to this wonderful tool. We owe it to them.
