Kevin Love discusses suffering panic attack during game”

In his story, Love, now 29 years of age, noted that he suffered his first panic attack in the third quarter of a loss to the Atlanta Hawks on November 5.

The 29-year-old self-described introvert says that he had a panic attack following halftime of a November 5 game against the Atlanta Hawks. Love says he visited the hospital when he couldn't control his racing heart and felt short of breath, and although his vitals all checked out, the incident led Love to realize the seriousness of mental health issues. But I was certain about one thing: I couldn't bury what had happened and try to move forward.

Dr. Erin Ayala affirms Love's show of strength was a risk, but one that inspires change in the way we all frame mental illness.

"One of the reasons I wanted to write this comes from reading DeMar's comments last week about depression", Love wrote in The Players' Tribune. "We're human beings, so I appreciate him". "Since that day, nearly everything about the way I think about my mental health has changed".

The Cavaliers forward writes in an essay for the Players' Tribune that he had a panic attack during a game this season and he has spent most of his life afraid to accept there was something wrong with him.

"Mental health isn't just an athlete thing".

In his essay, titled "Everyone Is Going Through Something", Love says he has begun seeing a therapist. I nodded, but I didn't hear much of what he said.

Call it a stigma or call it fear or insecurity - you can call it a number of things - but what I was anxious about wasn't just my own inner struggles but how hard it was to talk about them.

In the world of sports, Kevin Love is the latest to go public with some of the personal challenges he's been facing. Nor did most people outside of the organization.

"Coach Lue came up to me".

In fact, coming back just before the postseason after missing two months and trying to make it to the NBA Finals is a high-pressure situation for a player who has the Cleveland Cavaliers second-highest points per game average (17.9) and its highest rebound per game average (9.4). I flourished in spite of my anxiety, had a blast, made the girl that was by my side from the first attack my wife and somehow turned my passion for basketball into my career. It's here as I type, wondering who might read this and immediately think less of me.

Love has not played since breaking a bone in his left hand on January 30.

Look, I don't want to speak above my non-existent qualifications here, but I know this. "I'm trying to be good to the people in my life".
