Naomi Judd Opens Up About Battle with Suicidal Depression

Singer Naomi Judd is opening up about her battle with suicidal depression.

“Nobody can understand it unless you’ve been there,” Naomi, 70, told People. “Think of your very worst day of your whole life – someone passed away, you lost your job, you found out you were being betrayed, that your child had a rare disease – you can take all of those at once and put them together and that’s what depression feels like.”

“I literally couldn’t leave the house for weeks. I was completely immobilized and every single second was like a day,” Naomi added. “It’s so beyond making sense but I thought, ‘Surely my family will know that I was in so much pain and I thought they would have wanted me to end that pain [through suicide].’”

Naomi was the victim of sexual abuse when she was a young girl, at the hands of a relative.

You may know, Naomi is the mother of actress Ashley Judd, and Wynonna Judd, who she sang with for years.

Ashley and I are so stinkin’ much alike. I mean we have the same mannerisms. We both read a whole lot. We both love new places. I mean there’s such similarities,” she later told ABC.

Naomi and Wynonna are now “a little estranged from each other.”

“From the day I knew she existed, it was the two of us against the world and then through the decades we kind of grew up together, ’cause it was really just the two of us,” Naomi Naomi said. “And I’m always tellin’ her, ‘If I’d known better, I would have done better.’

“So Wy bore the brunt of all of the mistakes I made and we talk about ‘em,” she added. “We’ve been through a lot of therapy together.”

We’re wishing Naomi the best through her continued recovery. She details her journey in her new book “River of Time: My Descent into Depression and How I Emerged with Hope.”
