Depression, duh. He rose n rose, did wonderful work, then couldn't save the
company from what he saw was a mess; it made him feel powerless, he spiralled
down; and then the prophecy proved accurate, and instead of feeling
vindicated he felt responsible: If only I had spoken up more clearly, more
strongly, I am a failure; or he felt utterly betrayed: all I believed in, all
the people I believed in, were wrong, my life is built on sand and shadows, I
am a failure. And then he's asked to testify about it, and it's all too much,
he is a failure, and he's a big strong successful guy and can't imagine that
he has a mental illness, besides depressed people don't see it anyway, and
his family all thinks he'll get over it, he's just sad and tired and no one
senses he's deeply, clinically depressed ..... etc
It's screamingly obvious depression. Poor sod.
