Men and Depression: Jimmy Brown, Firefighter

"Many days I just didn't want to get out of bed."

Watch on YouTube.


JIMMY: Many days I just didn't want to get out of bed. Honestly, the only reason I got out of bed on more than a few of those days was because the dog had to get walked and my wife had to go to work. So, I'd walk the dog, take her to work, come back. Some days I'd get back in bed, some days I'd just sit on the couch and, you know, wonder what I was going to do next.
