|Former Detroit Lions receiver Titus Young opened up to the Los Angeles Times by sharing parts of a 141-page diary about his struggles, which were chronicled Brad Hunt Jersey in a story published Monday.
Young has been incarcerated at the California Rehabilitation Center in Norco, California, since his April 2017 sentencing after a 2016 fight -- the last in a string of legal incidents that led him to prison. Before that sentencing, he began to write in a diary, one the Times said he hopes to turn into a book. Young could be paroled in March, the Times reported.
ďI have made so many mistakes I have become a little ashamed of being Titus Young,Ē Young http://www.officialbroncosfootball.com/WOMENS_YOUTH_ANDY_JANOVICH_JERSEY.html wrote, according to the Times. ďA lot of the Sean Mannion Jersey stuff I have done was out of my control during the time. ... I was hearing voices.
ďHearing voices is no joke, itís actually very scary. I feel like someone is trying to kill me.Ē
According to the Times, Young wrote in his diary about football, mental illness and trying to become a better father for his son. He has been in and out of trouble with the law since 2013, months http://www.titansfootballofficialproshop.com/Authentic-Andre-Johnson-Jersey after he was released by the Detroit Lions after two seasons with the franchise.
While with the Lions, Young got into a fight with then-teammate Louis Al Jefferson Jersey Delmas and was suspended more than once for behavioral issues on the field.
In 2013, Youngís father, Richard, told the Detroit News and Detroit Free Press that his son changed after a possible concussion in 2011, his first year with the Lions, and that he was on the medication Seroquel. The drug is sometimes used to treat bipolar disorder and schizophrenia.In his diary, Young wrote about the diagnosis.
ďHaving bipolar has pretty much torn down my life,Ē Young wrote. ďItís been four years of fighting so many different behaviors. When I was first diagnosed, I didnít want to believe it because I felt my life was too perfect to have bipolar. Football players donít take medicine. Iím macho. Put me back on the field. But, no, thatís really not what I needed.Ē
According to the Times, when Young was ordered to undergo inpatient treatment at the Crosby Center outside San Diego after another incident, both a psychologist at the center and the centerís director said Young was misdiagnosed and was actually suffering from symptoms of CTE.
Young also wrote that heís not sure what caused his mental illness.
ďMy fight or flight in my brain was off and that could be due to head trauma suffered while playing football,Ē Young wrote. ďAll I know now is Iím back to normal and I take good medication and Iím not ashamed of it either.
