Holy moly this is both scary and good.
Damn. No matter what happens on the field, that kid will always be a Vol and I pray that he gets the help he needs. I know the AD will have his back as well.
Kudos to the young man for opening up like that.
Hopefully he's getting the help he needs.
Props to Maurer for opening up.
Is that around the time the cleat chaser was going public too
I don't know, but I remember thinking that fans should be careful how much they rubberneck on that.
I really hope his multiple concussions didn't contribute to his willingness to take his own life.
I've been trying to piece that together in my head too.
Dec. 13th, roughly 5 weeks prior.
2 or 3 concussions with suicidal thoughts soon after doesnt sound good.
I heard rumors that he wasn’t concussed, but had a neck injury. No idea if true or not.
Very possible but the shot on the back of the head on the late shove by bama DL when he hit our OGs knee was a head issue. Cant remember the 3rd issue. Other one was when he landed on his head and probably cranked his neck a little
I have been suicidal since I was 15. I'm 35 now. Anxiety and depression is a deadly combo. It isn't a daily struggle anymore. I thank God for that. He blessed me with a woman and children. I cant repent enough for that.
I feel this young man's pain, I've lived it for 20 years. I finally feel free. It is literally beyond words to escape that burden, I know it will come back again but I am ready to fight it this time without hesitation.
This is my last post, peace out.
I’m glad that you now are, and pray you’ll continue to be, well.
I m so happy that you never acted on it and are here with us. Don't hesitate to reach out for help.
From one internet stranger to another, I'm glad you're in a good place, man. Never be ashamed to reach out.
Gahlee, gahlee thats not really a cool way to go out imo.
"Ive thought about it and battled it. It sucks. Bye." ? Wtf.
Your post isn't exactly Fonzie material.
Ive been in communication with G off the main thread the past. Didnt like to hear what he posted, then to be followed up by him leaving here.
You have a problem with that?
