At the time of his heart attack Craig was under enormous pressure in his work and personal life. 
“I was under enormous stress and I had been for a long, long time. A lot of it was self-imposed and just rushing around at a million miles an hour.”
“I was frustrated and unhappy and that was difficult. I was struggling to sleep, or sleep well, and even though I might be healthy on the outside…but it all became too much.”
