On Thursday’s edition of the Dan Patrick Show, Patrick opened up about his struggles with joint pain over the years, which has also included medication-induced depression, suicidal thoughts, and memory loss.

Patrick’s openness in this segment deserves to be lauded, because we don’t hear those sort of personal revelations in sports media (and especially in sports talk radio, where the hottest takes are king) too often. I don’t think many people could have deduced that Patrick was struggling with both his physical and mental health recently, and it’s encouraging to hear him be so open with what he’s been dealing with.
