True story; this officer (John Pike) got a settlement of $38,000 because he said he got depressed after pepper spraying these kids. Oh, the depression wasn’t for feeling remorseful for pepper spraying a bunch of college kids peacefully protesting. He got depressed because he said since the media kept playing the video of him pepper spraying peaceful kids without cause, he got threats and didn’t feel safe. He didn’t feel safe. I’m not making that up. This motherfucker collected nearly 40 grand on worker’s comp after assaulting a bunch of college kids.
like when beyonce said “i woke up this way: flawless” she’s saying that flawless is not dependent on how she looks at a given moment; by dent of being alive, just by being authentic to herself, she’s flawless.
not “i woke up with this hair laid and makeup did and decked out clothes”. which is how everyone else apparently interpreted it.
Guys, I know I have GAD and something if there’s a name for obsessive thinking, analyzing every microscopic piece of a 4 minute encounter, accounting for every single possibility…I think that just goes with the territory though.
But right now I’m doing okay, and my first counseling session is next Wednesday…I’m worried though, because it’s a brand new person and an intern so she’ll only be here this year and then I’ll have another new person wow maybe I should switch…we’ll see…
