    Did you see the interview with Brandon Marshall?

    Brandon Marshall is a Wide Receiver with the Miami Dolphins.

    He was diagnosed with Borderline Personality in the spring. He tried to explain it to the media in a press conference. He said his goal was to bring Borderline Personality Disorder to the public so they have a better understanding of the mental health disorder.

    It was an awesome conference interview and he spoke slowly and carefully as he explained the effect of BPD on himself, his family, and his career.

    He also was recently hospitalized and was under the care of Marsha Lineham, the woman who put together the DBT skills and EMDR as the standard treatment for BPD.

    His last statement was that he became a born-again Christian not very long ago.

    He was a man who looked weary and my heart went out to him. I'll be praying that he achieves the goals he has set for himself.
