Naomi Judd Finally Reveals A Dark Secret She’d Been Keeping For Years

Country music icon Naomi Judd has revealed that she’s been struggling with “completely debilitating and life-threatening” depression for some time now, and she’s opening up about her struggle to shed some light on the matter. As ABC News reports, she’s even released a new book entitled “River of Time: My Descent into Depression and How I Emerged with Hope.”

Judd hopes that the book will show her fans and depression sufferers exactly what she’s been through.

“They think, because they see me in rhinestones, you know, with glitter in my hair, that really is who I am. I'm sort of a fantasy 'cause I want to provide that for them,” she explains.

Her depression has been so severe over the past six years that she has served several stints in psychiatric wards. She’s not pulling any punches on what she’s been dealing with, and she’s delivered an incredibly powerful message on a subject that’s often brushed aside.

“Because what I've been through is extreme. Because it was so deep and so completely debilitating and life-threatening and because I have processed and worked so hard for these last four years,” she continued.
