Dwayne Johnson opens up on depression and suicide https://t.co/foobAFIxec— Sky News (@SkyNews) April 3, 2018
[Trigger Warning - His description of how his mother attempted suicide]He was 15, his family had recently been evicted from an apartment. One day, his mother pulled over the car on an interstate in Nashville, got out, and walked into traffic. He was able to grab her and pull her back onto the gravel shoulder. To this day, she has no recollection of it.
A few years later, he started his own battle against depression after injuries ruined Johnson’s dreams of playing professional football.
He got to a point where didn’t want to do a thing or go anywhere, and was just crying constantly.
After the interview he thanked on twitter:
Got tons of responses to this. Thank you. We all go thru the sludge/shit and depression never discriminates. Took me a long time to realize it but the key is to not be afraid to open up. Especially us dudes have a tendency to keep it in. You’re not alone— Dwayne Johnson (@TheRock) April 2, 2018
