I have a good friend that is a sheriff Chaplin and the toughest job he has is with officers dealing with severe depression and very high suicide rates.
You guys keep the career paths you have chosen. I've got twenty years in law enfocement and I have to retire at 55 its mandatory for me. Ninety percent pure boredom coupled with ten percent pure terror on any given night or day. It takes a toll on the body and mind. That is why there is a high depression rate, suicide rate, and divorce rate in the law enforcement community.
A friend of mine was a deputy sheriff, and got out of it because of the emotional drain. He said the worst part was never being able to relax completely because he was always on the lookout for the bad guys. Even going out to eat dinner was weird for him because he wanted to sit in a place where he could observe and be ready.

Well, my official title is Contractor, but I am a Temp for Adecco working at Corning in Blacksburg, Virginia.
Thinking about going into the Bakery business....was in College to be a Creative Writing Professor, or Professor of Theology, or World Religions Professor, but started working at Corning which took me away from the classroom...12 hr swing shifts 36-64 hrs a week, does that!
My dream job is to write Christian Sci-Fi novels for a living and be a Minister (Pastor/teacher) when I am not writing.

I've been a land surveyor for the last 22 years.
That sounds like a cool job.:thumb I wanted to do this when I was in high school. I don't know what changed my mind, but sometimes I wish I would have followed through with it.
