John Wall says he contemplated taking his own life during a time in the last three years. When he was at the height of the COVID-19 pandemic with a torn Achilles and the death of family members.
Looking forward to returning this coming season
The 31-year-old guard joined the Los Angeles Clippers this summer. Looking forward to returning in this coming season. Wall has played just 40 games in the last three years due to injuries. He was not playing before COVID-19 and his former team, the Houston Rockets, joined the Clippers.
In the Salvation Army in Raleigh, North Carolina
Wall discussed her recent past at a garden dedication to her late mother at the Salvation Army in Raleigh, North Carolina, earlier this month, where she is from. His mother was a volunteer at the Wake County location.
I thought about committing suicide
“The darkest place ever,” Wall said. “At one time, I thought about committing suicide. I mean, tearing my Achilles, my mother getting sick, my mother passing away, my grandmother passing away a year later, all this amid COVID And at the same time, I’m going for chemotherapy, I’m sitting beside my mother, wearing the same clothes for three days, breathing my last, lying on the couch directly next to her.”
Died at the age of 58 after battling breast cancer
Wall’s mother, Frances Puli, passed away in December 2019 at the age of 58 after battling breast cancer. Later his grandmother died. At the same time, Wall was dealing with rehab for her Achilles injury.
to get back to the top where i want to be
Wall said, “We’re all going through times. It’s not easy for anyone, but I don’t think many people can go through what I’ve been through.” “And for me to be back on top of where I want to be and the fans still want me to play. Getting support from my hometown, this crucial period means a lot.
Wall said he had a strong support system
I went to find a doctor. Many people think ‘I don’t need help, I can get it anytime. But you have to stay true to yourself and find out what’s best for you.” Wall said she has a strong support system that includes her team and the mother of her two children. Her sons also inspire her. Huh.
“I see all that and I’m like, ‘If I can have this, I can achieve anything in life,'” he said.
