It’s interesting because at that time I didn’t know of any NFL, NFLPA, or official services to help me through that transition. The Trust wasn’t around at this time. There were some mentors in my life from my university that I would chat with and talk to, but a lot was left to navigate on my own with the support of my family. But I didn’t have any official support.
I also met a clinician during that time. I ended up meeting him for somebody else, but then I chose to see him for a little bit during that transition to just talk some things through. I found it extraordinarily helpful, having a licensed clinician. So, I recommend that to anybody. I remember even thinking that I didn’t want to meet in that office, because I didn’t want people seeing me going in and out of that office because I looked at that as weak. But, I was getting help, so it was good.
