Oh it was horrible, it was horrible, I wanted to quit. I’m a police officer, a detective, and my friends and co-workers really gave me a lot of support, and gave me a lot of time to get it together. I was fortunate, I had a, more of an inside job, so that it took, I had the time to ease back into the street work. I’m a big gun enthusiast and I like to shoot, target shoot mostly, but it took me a long, it took me almost year to even want to discharge my weapon. But once I went through a simulation exercise, I was fine after that. It was just; I just had to go through it. Just like sometimes people have to go back to the scene of where their accident was, same thing. I just had to, just do it.
