Steve and Jeffrey Gorman open up about various times in their lives where they have dealt with panic attacks, or similar issues where mental health had a dramatic impact on key moments in adulthood.

The Cavaliers forward detailed how he had his first panic attack when Cleveland faced the Atlanta Hawks in the National Basketball Association on November 5 a year ago.

In the letter, Love admits that he has been "protective about anything and everything in my inner life", adding that it's easy to talk about basketball-that comes naturally-but discussing anything personal was too hard. But I was certain about one thing: I couldn't bury what had happened and try to move forward.

"By that point, I was freaking out", Love continued.

What Kevin Love and DeMar DeRozan are speaking on is a truth that transcends any income bracket, quality of life, or circumstance. There were just a few dozen students seated around me and nowhere to hide. "Since that day, nearly everything about the way I think about my mental health has changed".

Cleveland Cavaliers All-Star Kevin Love has opened up about his panic attack this season and his struggles with mental health in an essay for the Player's Tribune.

"It really makes you think about how we are all walking around with experiences and struggles - all kinds of things - and we sometimes think we're the only ones going through them", Love wrote. I know that, left untreated, mental illnesses can develop and worsen and even metastasize, cancer-like, from neuroses into full-blown psychoses.

Love, who is now seeing a therapist, had another panic attack in January, according to a report from Joe Vardon of Cleveland.com.

In the world of sports, Kevin Love is the latest to go public with some of the personal challenges he's been facing. 'Now, at my age, I understand how many people go through it. I think he could sense something was wrong. He hasn't played since January 30 due to a broken bone in his left hand and isn't expected back until the last week of March.

"I admire his willingness to come out and talk about something that's an issue for a lot of people", Kerr said.

The incident still weighed on him, though, and the thought of anyone finding out bothered him, too. I'm healthy. I play basketball for a living.

"For 29 years, I thought about mental health as someone else's problem", he said.

Sources familiar with the meeting told ESPN's Dave McMenamin that Love disclosed to his teammates that he had suffered another panic attack during the loss to the Thunder. "I'm trying to be good to the people in my life".
