Christina Applegate clarifies ‘dark thoughts’ after saying she doesn’t ‘enjoy living’

Christina Applegate has opened up about her “dark thoughts” after fans expressed concern over her recent confession that her multiple sclerosis makes her “not enjoy life.”

“Oh my God, guys, I’m so good. Isn’t that what everybody wants to hear? I’m good,” the “Dead to Me” alum, 52, says. He spoke on the “Messy” podcast. Tuesday. “Has the pressure eased a little for you guys? It’s okay.”

“I was talking about the dark things that I was thinking and feeling… This is a safe place to let those things out, because when we keep something inside, we give it power,” she continued.

Applegate added, “I think people with mental health issues feel so much shame. It’s a fleeting moment. It’s a thought. It’s a feeling.”

She said being able to express her “dark thoughts” – even if it makes others uncomfortable – is “incredibly healing and important,” and she also assured fans that she is “not on suicide watch” due to her chronic illness.

“How can someone be diagnosed with multiple sclerosis or any chronic illness that has robbed them of who they were before that moment and say, ‘This is wonderful,'” she said.

“There are moments when you think, ‘This is exhausting, I don’t want to do this,’ but you still do it,” Applegate said. “Saying it out loud releases the pressure in the balloon.”

Earlier this month, the Emmy winner revealed that she had suffered from “severe depression” and found herself in a “dark place.”

“This is just completely honest… I’m not enjoying life,” she said candidly. “I don’t enjoy it. I don’t enjoy anything anymore.”
