Terror fatigue today

I walked out of the subway this morning and was greeted by a serious looking police officer with an AF-47 assault rifle.

There are days when I can take the kevlar, helmets and bomb sniffing dogs. Other days I can't. Maybe it was the long weekend, but this guy gave me chills.

I SO tired of terror related BS!

I guess the other part to is it that I understand the super security outside the stock exchange. This was blocks away. This guy was walking towards me (and away from the stock exchange) with a serious looks on his face and a sense of purpose.

It's crazy how everytime I think i'm past the whole 9-11 thing it comes back.

I'm ok with having to use 20 id's to get into the building that I work in, i've gotten used to the giant whole in the ground that used to be WTC 1 & 2, bomb sniffing dogs in front of the building, the police in helmets, bomb suits and Ak's. But usually I have a few blocks to get myself ready. Not today.

I'm here to earn a living to support my family. I SOOO deeply miss the pre-9/11 NY. Today i've got a BAD case of terror fatigue!

Re: Terror fatigue today

Thank you for your kind word.

It's funny how some days it's no big deal and other days I want to cry all day.

I got lucky today. I was busy and didn't go out for lunch. So I didn't have to see anything scary. This evening i'm running an errand for my boss after work and will take care service home. That way I don't have to walk the security gauntlet or ride the subway! YAY!

Well I just couldn't imagine working that close to ground zero and being reminded of 9/11 everyday. Hopefully tomorrow will be a better day for you!

Thank you mama.

Working near ground zero isn't so bad but the security is truely heart stopping. It's like working in downtown Beruit. While today is an "I could cry all day" day. I'm sure tomorrow will be better.

Re: Terror fatigue today

Thanks for your support today mama's. I was feeling sooo anxious at work.

I'm back home in the burbs and my anxiety is TOTALLY gone! My boss put me in a car service and sent me home. So no subway and no bus terminal. YAY!
