Not feeling mentally stable

Working in the prison system is starting to really get to me. I had a bad incident tonight were 8 inmates were getting ready to attack this guy who was a rapist. I won't go into the details but never the less my head feel all screwed up. I think about dark stuff alot and between my anxiety and ocd and depression I feel I am slowly losing my sanity. I wish I could vent to somebody so I thought I would post it here. Theirs very few people I talk to. Physically I look healthy. But mentally I don't feel that way anybody else like this?

Do they offer any psych support for prison workers?

Nah not really. I see enough psychos how can they know how your feel. I see a psychiatrist they just give me a bunch of pills and read a book that list the side effects.

It's amazing what someone in your position witness everyday. Worse for police officers considering the amount of incidents they deal with on a daily basis.

Are you seeing a therapist of any kind? If you are feeling mentally unstable you should seek help. You need professional input and advice.

Also I know this is a huge suggestion but could you somehow change jobs? I know it's not easy finding a job in this economy, but with your mentality and being surrounded by violent and self-destructive behaviour daily will eventually wear you down and destroy you. You should try to get out if you can and seek a more stable job.

If you want to chat you can message me. Cheers.

I have frequently been this way in the past. A lot see me as normal and expect normal things, but I am not like that at all.
