Last week I shared the powerful story of Cory Richards, a mountaineer and Nat Geo photographer who suffers from PTSD in such a way that has actually brought a cycle of self-destructive behavior to his life. The PTSD manifested itself after he was nearly killed in an avalanche while climbing Gasherbrum II a few years back, and it has made his life a struggle ever since. In this video, we get to see and hear Cory talk about these challenges and the demons he has faced along the way. It is a sobering and honest look at what it is like to live a life of adventure but still not be able to escape the things that are haunting you.
