In No Shadow Can Touch, Rick talks to his wife about what was going through his mind before the accident that now prevents him from dancing.
RICK: On the day of the accident, I sort of knew it was coming. I’m not saying it was premeditated, no…but I felt so, I don’t know Ally, I felt tired, more tired than I ever felt in all my years and it wasn’t the kind of tired where I knew I’d bounce back after a good nights rest, this was ME. I was tired all over, inside and out…only thing left was my mind and I refused to give in to it, which to be honest, was where I went wrong. I pushed myself too hard, I was angry at myself for feeling the way I felt, and the worst thing that could have happened, happened. It was all my fault. I forced myself to reach my demise faster than I should have and I’m angry that I didn’t back off myself and calculate. Calculate how much longer I could have stayed in the game, to buy myself enough time to make a smooth transfer to something that would hold my integrity intact and I failed, I failed you and my son and it’s driving me crazy. Look where I put us.
