After 20 years in the combat arms, my struggles with PTSD have limited me and made my life challenging to say the least.
My beautiful wife ( @carlatini) and son @andrew._burgoyne are amazing and when they aren't there my service dog Gunner (the dog who rules the world), picks up the slack. But there are still days when I struggle to leave the house.
Why do I love my athletes?
Because no matter what struggles I'm experiencing, no matter how hard my issues fight against me, no matter how low my mental health brings me, my athletes and boxing are always there for me.
