Falling created physical pain.
The pain stifled my ability as well as my desire to walk.
Not walking (running) caused anxiety, worry, doubt and fear. The anxiety, worry, doubt and fear led to a road of hopelessness.
That road of hopelessness funneled into severe depression.
Severe depression left me stuck and essentially incapable of caring for myself or my family, be it physical, mental, or emotionally, but especially financially.
