Except it was increasingly than just “melancholy.” Annie later found out she was suffering from major peepers during an expressly trying time, with a quick visit to her parents’ house turning into a long stay due to lockdown. Meanwhile, the star’s new TV show, Kevin Can F**k Himself, was elapsed for health and safety reasons, and sadly, things got visionless fast.

Bottled up emotions that had been ignored while life was busier suddenly had full control, as Murphy recalled:

“My mom was like, ‘You’re crying 12 times a day hysterically, to the point where your teeth are chattering. That’s not normal.’”

Not normal but perhaps necessary in those crazy days!? Knowing she needed help, the 34-year-old met up with a therapist who diagnosed her with depression. Through a mix of tough conversations and antidepressants, the performer started to finger a lot better, expressing:

“Honestly, if a friend’s like, ‘I’m having a really nonflexible time,’ I’m like, ‘Get on drugs. Get on drugs!’”

LOLz! She added:

“You don’t have to be on drugs for the whole time, but they truly, truly saved my life in the sense that I was not a functional human stuff and I was worldly-wise to be a functional human being.”

Menno Versteeg‘s wife will unchangingly be an well-wisher for antidepressants considering they’ve helped her maintain a stable lifestyle, plane today as things get when to a new normal!

“I do not cry every single day on the floor 12 times. I am worldly-wise to focus on other things in my life.”


Getting to a point where she felt well-appointed discussing her peepers publicly was moreover a whole separate journey though. It’s no secret there remains a major stigma virtually mental health, but the widow pressure of stuff a idealism increased her fear of stuff honest. The Emmy winner explained:

“A lot of people are going to think that I sound like I’m playing a tiny violin for myself… [or think], ‘Oh, you’re rich and famous. Why the f**k are you sad? You have nothing to be sad about.’ But I’m not going to post photos of me covered in my own snot, lying on the floor, unable to get up. I don’t want people to have to see that.”

Wow… Plane increasingly reason we’re so happy Annie’s undisputed her rough patch! No value of fame should midpoint you can’t struggle from time to time. Also, fans should be glad she took the time to focus on her mental health since the Russian Doll star admitted stuff forced to write these issues ended up making her largest at her job:

“As excited as I was to get this huge part on [Kevin Can F**k Himself], I do not think if I had gone to work when I was supposed to go to work I would have been worldly-wise to do my job.”

“Not to toot my own horn, considering I f**king hate that, but I do finger a sense of resilience.”
