Anger, anger, anger. I get that question a lot now, like “where you put all that anger?” Me being angry at the beginning, like I was in physical in football, karate, and stuff like that, so the only way I could get it out was being physical. So, at first, I started out—I used to smoke marijuana, and drink a lot because I looked at my life was over. I can’t do anything, so I was hurting so much so I just wanted to numb myself, so I wouldn’t be angry, so I wouldn’t be depressed. And so, when that right there wore off, I was still angry and still depressed, I was like “that’s not working for me.” I didn’t like that, I wanted something more effective, and so I started working out more. Whatever I can do from the beginning to as I got better, every time I felt angry I would work out a lot, or I would watch funny movies like “Friday,” anything that would make me laugh. And then just spending time with a female friend that always helped me as well to deal with my anger. And then once I became strong enough, and being able to move and stuff, I had a punching bag, so it had a lot of work.
