The Real Housewives of Orange County took a break from drama-filled, scripted catfights last night and focused on an important issue: postpartum depression.
New cast member Peggy Tanous revealed that she battled the disease for three years, going into more detail with E! News about just how serious things turned.
"I [felt] so lost and depressed and overwhelmed that I had a thought of going upstairs and grabbing the gun," Tanous said of her suicidal thoughts. "There were days when I would wake up and I just didn't want to get out of bed... Thank God there were never thoughts of me wanting to harm my children."
Says the 41-year-old mother of two says, who benefited from the aid of holistic supplements: "I'm in a much better place now, and feel almost pretty much back to normal. I have some bad days, but for the most part I feel pretty much back to normal... it's an ongoing struggle."
We wish her, and all women suffering from similar feelings, the best best of luck with it.
