She continues: “I was suicidal. I was to that place where it got so dark and heavy. Because sometimes you feel like ‘I’m the provider, I take care of people, I’m not supposed to be feeling this way. What do I do?’ I wanted out.” Michelle later wrote on Twitter: “Thank you @TheTalkCBS for being a safe place to talk about #depression #mentalhealthawareness!!
