As I grew up, I became aware that there are people with special needs out there, and I have a real connection with them.
Every time I was playing basketball, I felt sick to my stomach. I didn't realize that feeling was having to leave my family - having to leave my sister, who can't even communicate with me when I'm gone.
That's the thing: You don't understand burnout unless you've been burned out. And it's something you can't even explain. It's just doing something you have absolutely no passion for.
It's expensive to raise a child with special needs, which people don't even think about. Emotionally it can be a struggle, but financially it's really rough.
You don't have to follow what most players do by going to the top school. You can do anything at any school you're at, as long as you're focused and you work hard.
