    I have spent most of my adult life in uniform, both the green of the infantry and the blue of a front-line police office in North America. I am an Alpha Male and, although I knew that things were not right in my life, I kept my chin up and soldiered on. I started drinking and retreating from life and soon had lost my relationship and my house.  After I found myself with my service pistol in my mouth I knew I had to get out and I quit the police. Life recovered for a few months but then fell apart again. Finally I sought help and was assigned to Dr Alexandra Chrysagi. That was a few months ago and I met with her weekly on an EMDR programme.
