The battle playing hockey was nothing compared to the battle inside my brain ... I could not function properly performing basic life skills without a lot of effort ... I want people to know that there is hope in desperation, there is healing in facing an ugly past and there is no shame in involving others in your battle.
— Islanders goalie Robin Lehner opens up about his addiction and bipolar diagnosis | As quoted by The Athletic
