Addiction is a problem that plagues the world of professional wrestling. We’ve seen lives destroyed both in and out of the ring. Recently, WWE Hall of Famer Sunny was in the news after being involved in a fatal DUI crash last year. The jokes and the memes that followed were horrible, in my opinion, and I’m ranting about it this week.

Awareness of mental health issues such as depression and bipolar disorder is currently on the rise. In the past, such disorders went either undetected or were simply disregarded as an excuse for erratic behavior. @chadsmart fit into this category. Inspired by a blog post from professional wrestler @GentlemanJervis Cottonbelly detailing his battle with depression, Chad knew it was time to confront what was becoming a too frequent occurrence.
Joined by @my123cents host @kevinhunsperger, Chad opens up about his personal battle and recent steps to contain the depression. Chad attempts to be as open and honest as possible. Shaking off the stigma of being ashamed or embarrassed by the disease, sharing the details and being candid is a cathartic experience.
If you think, or know, you have have depression, no matter what level it may be, please reach out to someone. You are not alone.
