Just cant turn it off......
by Secret Squirrel
I too, was a correctional officer. Did 24 years with the FEDS, could not wait to retire, just burnt out. Its been little over a week and just can't turn it off.
Those who have done the job I have done for that long, know what I mean. There are things i would like to do , just dont do them.
Retiredepression crept in.
I have a part time job that I have transitioned into because i have been doing it for several years. I thought " No issue with that". I'm good with that.
The part that is eating me up is the lack of communication with people, my spouse has no idea what type of job I did, so she has no idea what is going on. The communication was constant at my job, I loved it.......now its gone.
Financial issues are not a concern, I know what type of pension I'm getting, just need to hold of until they come in.
Would like to hear from Correctional officers who have dealt with the initial changes. No disrespect to others, just want to get a feel from Correctional Officers.
