Here’s an excerpt from a guest column that ran yesterday in our sister publication, Golf Course Industry.
It details how Nate Jordan, an assistant superintendent in Ohio, discovered and dealt with his depression.
Each day was a struggle. Just having the energy to get out of bed in the morning was a challenge. While at work I found it difficult to concentrate, remember, and comprehend new information. Even routine tasks that we’ve all completed around the golf course maintenance facility were cumbersome.
Day after day I came home feeling defeated and empty. My emotions were running frantically and I had uncontrollable thoughts. Those thoughts were mostly negative and consisted of things such as, “I’ll never reach my goals, how did I make it this far, and I’m not as good as I used to be.”
On the outside I looked perfectly normal, but on the inside I was a mess, and that is what made it so challenging.
