I am not a sportsman, but I totally get him. Anxiety is a heartless b****h. I want to tear my chest and pull out my heart sometimes and it doesn't come alone it comes with severe body pain that I cannot control or sooth. Can't tell anyone except for my husband because mental illness is still some kind of make -believe thing for our society. I am so glad that he talked about it. A lot of people should do so. Not being able to show that makes it worse.
