Holland Taylor opens up about decade-long depression

holland-taylor Two and a Half Men star Holland Taylor has revealed that she struggled with depression for more than ten years. In an interview with Parade magazine the actress who played Charlie Sheen’s mum on the show said that she went through tough period and that on some days she couldn’t even bring herself to leave the house to go grocery shopping.

She said: “I’ve suffered depression from my early 40s into my mid-50s. I actually wasn’t a danger to myself, but I really sometimes wondered how I could get out of the house to go get food. I was on anti-depressants for over 15 years, with very intermittent counseling. It was a very dead period of my life. Anti-depressants take away the lows but they also reduce the highs. And, for me, over a long period of time, they didn’t really work. So I quit taking them, and my life has been a fire since then.”
