Jameela Jamil Says She Was Having Suicidal Thoughts This Same Time Last Year

Jameela Jamil is looking back on her suicidal thoughts she had just a year ago.

The 34-year-old Misery Index host opened up about how negative thoughts invaded her being following comments from online bullies that were accusing her of faking her illnesses.

“Just a year ago I was totally suicidal,” she shared, during The BodCon, a conference focused on body confidence. “This week is my birthday week. I was totally suicidal on my birthday last year because of how much people were just mocking my disability, or like, mocking my mental health and I was like, what an ugly world, I don’t want to be here anymore.”

In 2020, many had accused Jameela of having Munchausen syndrome, or factitious disorder, which is a mental illness that causes people to fake health scares for attention.

“Now a year later, I’m like the strongest and the happiest and the freest I’ve ever been,” she shared during her virtual appearance.

Now, Jameela says, she’s learned not to care as much about what people think of her.

“I’m not out to impress a bunch of strangers who because of misogyny are looking to poke holes in me anyway,” she added, saying that there’s an added level of scrutiny for prominent women.

“Look at the way we treat women in the public eye, look at mega mafia, look at Britney Spears, look at Paris Hilton, Lindsay Lohan, Amanda Bynes, like Anne Hathaway, Jennifer Lawrence, Greta Thunberg — we do this to every single prominent woman,” Jameela shared. “When we don’t like a man we just don’t learn anything about him — we don’t learn his name. We don’t follow him on the internet, we just don’t care. When we don’t like a woman, we will investigate every single thing she’s ever said, ever done…scrutinize her obsessively. It’s really weird.”

Previously, Jameela opened up about a suicide attempt she had eight years ago.

Jameela Jamil Opens Up About Her Suicide Attempt Eight Years Ago: 'I Just Reached My Limit'

Jameela Jamil has opened up about a suicide attempt that she experienced eight years ago.

During her appearance on Red Table Talk, the Misery Index host got candid with Jada Pinkett Smith and her daughter, Willow Smith, about what contributed to the attempt.

“Eight years ago… I tried to kill myself because I had a nervous breakdown,” Jameela revealed. “It was the second time I tried and I thought, ‘Well, I’m just gonna do it again if something huge doesn’t change– if everything doesn’t change.’ And so I decided to try and figure out my trauma, what had taken me to this low point…”

She went on and “realized, after seeking help, I had very severe depression and that my depression was caused by repressed rage. Upon realizing that, I was like ‘Okay, I have to just completely change everything’…And so I decided to just get rid of my filter, to mixed results on the internet, and I decided to never hold anything in ever again.”

Jameela says that by doing that, it helped her in her personal life and “while I understand that is not always the most responsible position to take, especially when you are a public figure, this has just been my personal journey to try to not kill myself again.”

The Good Place star also revealed that her nervous breakdown was heightened because she not only had pneumonia, but was over worked, too.

“I wasn’t able to lie down and sleep. I was also a DJ, so I was DJ’ing all night…working myself to the bone because also, as a woman, you’re always told that you have a sprint, not marathon, and so you never say no to a job,” she says. “You never say no to an opportunity. I was working myself to death. Everything was falling apart and I think I just reached my limit.”

Jameela added, “Everyone has a limit of how much sh** you can eat in this world and my cup of sh** runneth over and so I was like, ‘…what is the point? I’m not contributing anything to anyone. Everyone would be better off without me…’”

Earlier in the year, Jameela had another attempt after online bullies came after her and accused her of having Munchausen Syndrome.

The claims became so bad that her boyfriend, James Blake, even stepped in.
