    This is a great article and great story not only about Osa, but his brother Owa’s story also gives some great insight on how hard it is for young NFL players to stay healthy- mentally and physically.

    Like others have stated, I’ll be rooting for Osa to make this team and have a meaningful NFL career.

    Clinical Depression is an unfortunate name for the condition. It makes it much more difficult to understand than if it were named Chemical Brain Imbalance or something similar.

    Most people wouldn't hesitate to take medication for a Thyroid condition but many would be hesitant to take anti-depressants.

    The thing that gets me is the story with his dad. That’s crazy stuff to deal with honestly.

    Well, Hill did flash last year. But that only meant he went from being a player not worthy of being on an NFL team to a player who maybe deserved to be on a practice squad.

    Not exactly. Both clinical depression and bipolar disorder are brain chemistry issues. I have a daughter who is bipolar and I’ve had to learn some of these things.

    Depression and bipolar disorder both are problems caused by either the lack or too much of the brain chemicals serotonin and dopamine. Or in the case of bipolar disorder, it’s more like the person’s brain chemistry is very erratic.

    When a bipolar person experiences a “manic episode”, their brain is flooded with dopamine, causing high energy behavior, sometimes resulting in risky or inappropriate behavior. When the opposite happens, the bipolar person can become seriously depressed or even angry for non obvious reasons. Thus, you see the highs and lows with untreated bipolar disorder.

    This is certainly a non-medical, probably over simplified explanation. Both depression and bipolar disorder are brain chemistry issues. I’ve learned you cannot talk someone out of depression or expect someone suffering from one of these ailments to just snap out of it. Mental health is a real issue that we all have so much still to learn about. The brain is still a frontier where we have lots to learn.
