Christina Applegate finally clarified her shocking comment of not enjoying living earlier this month at her and Jamie-Lynn Sigler’s MeSsy podcast. She recently explained her statement by underscoring the soothing antidote that it’s OK to not be OK that after sharing on the podcast she’s “in a depression right now” and being “trapped in this darkness.” Let’s check out what she has said.

Christina Applegate said she is not suicidal 

Applegate said of her earlier statement, “I’m going to address something that recently happened … I was talking about some dark stuff that I was thinking and feeling … I feel like when we hold things in we give them power. I also think that there’s so much shame a lot of people feel when they’re going through mental health issues … and when people holds those in, because they’re so afraid to say how they truly feel, we give it immense power.”

The 52-year-old continues, “Not only holding things in gives it power but it also can cause disease in your body — cancer, all sorts of things. Loneliness. All of that, by holding it in because society has told us we’re supposed to be just f**king fine. And I am not into that. I am not a proponent of that kind of thing. I think it is incredibly healing and important to be able to express the thoughts, whether that makes someone uncomfortable or not.”

Applegate is undoubtedly going through a hard time after announcing in August 2021 about her diagnosed with multiple sclerosis (MS). 

“By making such a big deal about it you’re making other people think, ‘Oh, s**t, I can’t talk about this.’ And that is not OK with me. It’s important to be able to say these things. And, no, I’m not sitting here on suicide watch, OK? I am not. Nor have I ever been.” the actress added. “I dare anyone to be diagnosed with MS or any kind of chronic illness that has taken who you were prior to that moment and go, ‘This is great.’ You know? No, you have moments of feeling, ‘This is tiring and I don’t want to do this.’ But you do it, and by having friends like you and my beautiful friends that I have saying this s**t out loud it releases the pressure in the balloon.”

Her co-host  Jamie-Lynn Sigler later applauded Applegate for sharing her “fleeting” thoughts which highlighted their show’s concept that it’s OK to not be OK. As Sigler gives her own example as she sometimes also prayed she doesn’t wake up which Applegate understands by explaining, “What I hear from that is, ‘I pray to not wake up like this,’ you know? Of course you want to be there. You know, we have children. We have family. We have loved ones. It’s OK for us to say, ‘I don’t want to wake up like this.’ This does not serve me. And I want to wake up like how I used to.”
