From My Hero File

“It became a point where I wanted to die. I didn’t have any reasons to live. Maybe it’s selfish to say that, but I was not excited about anything. Then you have to find back your self-esteem. And then, slowly, every piece of yourself becomes precious again.”  —Jean Claude Van Damme on his rapid cycling bipolar disorder and cocaine addiction.

Thanks to David Kanigan for showing me this video.

    Wow. I did not know this about Jean Claude Van Damme. Cool. I’ve always respected his acting and… and I think he’s damned sexy! This video is amazing, I’ve watched it several times. It fits right along with my next blog post about courage and self-esteem. Thanks Sandy.

    Sandy, I’m so sorry you’re going through this tough cycle again. Hang in there, Kiddo. You and your badass self can knock this sucka out.
