Dr. Amy Lewis, a dermatologist who has not treated the 65-year-old, but is familiar with the hormone therapy he’s reportedly undergoing, explains to ‘Life & Style’ that the chemicals involved with transitioning can “cause mood and behavioral changes, including depression.”
And the former Olympian’s recent emotional status appears to reflect the change in attitude.
“Bruce has been crying day and night,” a close friend revealed.

This comes shortly after an insider told ‘In Touch Weekly’ that, while describing Bruce’s emotional state in recent weeks, “grief doesn’t even touch it.”
The source continued, “He is devastated, and in so much fear that he can barely talk.”
