Relationships can be stressful. When you are in a relationship with a person who has been diagnosed with bipolar disorder, it can be overwhelming. During manic times you are always conscious of risks associated with dare-devil behavior; during depressive times, you may feel left out as your mate or child retreats into their own little cocoon of misery and loneliness.

Chris Borland made a choice: Play the game he loved and risk brain injury and incapacitation, or play on, make oodles of money and see how it went. He assessed the risks and found that he wasn't willing to take chances on injuring his brain. So he passed on football to go into private life and pursue other interests. Some saw this as inconceivable but his parents, retired players and friends applauded him for being mature enough to make the decision that was right for him, however unpopular that decision may be to others.
