Ever the instructor and motivator, Simmons wrote about what the ordeal had taught him.
"This has reminded me that when you need help you can’t be afraid to reach out and ask for it," he advised. "We all think we should always be able to solve our problems all by ourselves and sometimes it’s just bigger than we are. I reached out and I hope you will, too. I’m sure there are people in your life who love and care for you and would do anything to help you with the challenges you face."
He closed by reassuring his followers, "Just knowing you care has already made me feel better."
