I fear I am getting closer to insanity.

I have been doing a lot of this lately.

Serious thread or just wanting to vent some steam?

Work or personal life related?

Work is ... well, work. More hobby time, more "there's more to enjoying life than work", and less "let's take everything non-family related as seriously as possible".

Also, always trying to live up to the unrealistic expectations of others ... and sometimes even ourselves ... may not be the smoothest of courses.

Now, if even your hobbies start to seem like work, and create stress and annoyance for you, it may be time to re-evaluate whether something's still a fun hobby.

Also if you don't have as many friends outside of work as you have peers, acquaintances or friends at work, you might need to pause and consider whether your time off is really time off.

Hard to recharge batteries if they're constantly being drained, right?

I've become convinced that one of the major reasons a lot of cops become more relaxed upon retirement is that they don't have to hang out with all the same "peers & friends" anymore.

I'd much rather hang out with the regular guys who aren't cops at 2-3 of the cigar clubs where I've been a member over the years.

You'd have to be crazy to think that, Bullman.

Work mostly. Sheriff's office if that say enough. I like the Sheriff, I like most of the people I work with. I just hate the way the place is run. I hate getting ripped off.

A SO is it's own kind of animal. Tougher job than city or state has in my experience.

No, right now we don't have one. It is just that a monster has been created that can't be shut off.

If you think an SO is bad, try the BOP sometime, lol. There's more than one reason I'm looking at a major career change right now.

Seriously, PM if you need to vent, man. Been there, done that, got the ******* t-shirt.

FWIW: At work over the years I would frequently feel I was losing my mind. Finally I let it go. Best thing I ever did!

My suggestion, it's a crazy world, and the stress of it causes us stress. If you feel like you are losing your mind, just let it go. This will set you free and make you immune to all the other crazy stuff going on around you!

to put it another way;

look down at your feet. the area above them is all you really have control of. don't get in a pointless battle with a crazy world.
