David Feherty Opens Up About His Battle With Depression
For David Feherty, everyday can be a war against his own mind. Depression, he describes at times, can control parts of his life. He describes it as a cloak that covers him and he is unable to take off. Daily events that we do without much thinking become wars for Feherty. When he hears of a child being murdered, he vicariously feels the pain of the parents who have just lost someone. He estimates that he takes around a dozen pills per day just to keep going. In a shockingly real account of David Feherty’s life, HBO's "Real Sports" covers Feherty's battle through this disease and how he copes with the sickness, while still remaining a standout at his profession.
Feherty was the long time CBS commentator, who left to work at NBC after two decades. At NBC, Feherty has an opportunity to remain a lead golf analyst, along with working his first Olympics.
Below you can watch a clip of tonight's interview with Bryant Gumbel. The interview will premiere tonight on "Real Sports" at 10 p.m. ET on HBO.
