BRANDON MARSHALL TALKS ABOUT THE DISORDER
Mon, 01 Aug 2011 05:22 PM EDT

Brandon Marshall had surprised many people during a drill when he made a rather juggling one handed catch and drew a loud standing ovation from the fans of the Miami Dolphins in the sun baked stands. Just a few minutes after that another great grab had earned him the first bump from his coach Tony Sparano as well as left Marshall who was chapping his hands. This as it seemed made him very happy. But off field this was not the case. The receiver for the Dolphins was earlier diagnosed with a borderline personality disorder which has been known to stem from various situations which includes unstable personal relationships, fear of failure, and negative self image. He then made the decision to go publish with his issue in order to raise awareness, and he also plans to lobby in Congress for funding to assist with research. Football betting lines

Marshall spoke after Sunday’s practice at an interview session “For so long, I’ve been just trying to get help. I’ve been seeking help,” But he did not take one question. Basketball odds “I’ve been talking with doctors since I’ve been in the NFL. No one has ever helped me. So I was praying there was a treatment out there for what I suffered from and there was.”

Marshall also spoke to the South Florida Sun Sentinel for a story which was published don Sunday that he had spent $60,000 on treatment for his disorder which according to the National institute on Mental health is  “a serious mental illness characterized by pervasive instability in moods, interpersonal relationships, self-image, and behavior.”

Mary Zanarini who is a professor of psychology at Harvard Medical School said “BPD is a well understood psychological disorder. Basketball spreads It’s not a form of misbehavior,”

Marshall said at the press conference “There comes a time in a guy like myself’s life, with everything that I’ve been through, that you become bulletproof to the critics and to what the world thinks of you,” “Right now, today, I am vulnerable. I am making myself vulnerable. And I want it to be clear that this is the opposite of damage control. The only reason why I’m standing here today is to use my story to help others who may suffer from what I suffer from.”
