“The Osbournes” matriarch made the confession on “The Talk” on Wednesday, telling her panel, “I was joking about this but I shouldn’t, talking about my depression, and it’s like, you know saying, ‘Oh, the first time I tried to kill myself was OK, the second — all right, the third time, oy!’”
“But it’s like, I’m still here. I still do what I do and you struggle.”
Osbourne, 66, admitted that her ongoing struggle with depression hasn’t been easy, but that medication has helped her tremendously.
Still, she says, “I wish everybody could think flowers and daisies and princesses, but you can’t.”
Osbourne has long been open about her mental health struggles.
“I woke up in Cedars-Sinai Hospital and for probably three days, I knew nothing. I couldn’t think, I couldn’t talk, I could do nothing. My brain just shut down on me,” she said. “It took me days before I could even speak. I didn’t want to speak, I didn’t want to eat, I didn’t want to talk to anyone. I couldn’t keep thoughts in my head. My head was like a whirlpool, going round and round and round, and not one thought would stay in it. I was just like, a thing.”
Osbourne said that being overworked and stressed likely triggered her breakdown, and that adjusting her medications helped her recover, revealing she’d been on various medications and dosages for her mental health struggles for 16 years.
