Whenever any of us experience something for the first time we have to learn how to deal with it, from the most trivial to the most serious.
Sometimes we can learn quickly and sometimes it can take years. With mental illness you have to allow for the person's personality, life experience, social values and pressures from other significant adults to name but a few.
If it develops slowly then it's hard to see one day as better or worse than the day before. This month compared to last month - maybe, this year compared to last year- probably. Others may see it before you do, hide it well and they may notice little things but overall won't identify it.
Sometimes you have to hit the crisis before it can be dealt with. It is such a personal thing that you can't generalise and with Aaron, whist others will have experienced similar events, no one will have experienced it exactly like him.
Don't try to attach blame or responsibility to him, the club or anyone else. All we know are a few facts about the crisis point and that is probably one per cent of the overall picture. The rest is private and personal and should be kept that way.
If Aaron chooses to talk publicly in the future that's fine and I think we would all respect that because that takes real bottle.
