'Came out of nowhere': Kevin Love reveals battle with panic attacks, opens up about mental health

Love opened up about mental health, the stigma that plagues those who endure mental health issues and how he's learning to figure out how to manage himself.

Kevin Love first became aware that he was struggling with something just this year, right after halftime in a game against the Hawks on November 5th. In the article, Love speaks about the issue of mental health that affect millions across the nation, and the stigma attached to it that makes it hard for men to address the issue head-on. But I was certain about one thing: I couldn't bury what had happened and try to move forward.

Love expressed the same sentiment, concluding his letter by saying, "Not talking about our inner lives robs us of really getting to know ourselves and robs us of the chance to reach out to others in need".

"This was new territory for me, and it was pretty confusing", Love wrote. It's just...we're human beings. "Since that day, nearly everything about the way I think about my mental health has changed".

Cleveland Cavaliers forward Kevin Love opened up about suffering a panic attack during a game this season - and how it led to him addressing his mental health - in an essay published on The Players' Tribune on Tuesday.

You can not tell what someone else is going through just by looking at them; mental health is a concern for rich and poor, male and female, healthy and sickly.

Everyone is going through something you can't see. Sure, he said. My professor would later check on me, but to everyone that had witnessed the event ... this was the end of it. I didn't even know if they were real.

In any case, now that Love has made his panic attacks a matter of public record, everything has been put in perspective. After playing against DeRozan for years, Love said he would have never guessed one of the game's best players was having problems similar to his own.

Kevin Love wants everyone to know it is okay to seek help. 'Now, at my age, I understand how many people go through it. "So I appreciate him coming out, I thought that was great".

Love's expose detailed everything from symptoms, a need for closure after unexpectedly losing his grandmother and the shame he battled after the panic attack. "I'm trying to be good to the people in my life".

"I was running from room to room, like I was looking for something I couldn't find".

"In the National Basketball Association, you have trained professionals to fine-tune your life in so many areas".
