Majella O’Donnell has urged people suffering from depression to ask for help in the wake of Robin Williams’ death.
The wife of singer Daniel O’Donnell has bravely spoken about her own battle with the condition and how she too wanted to take her own life.
Majella tweeted “Some of the most talented and successful people suffer from depression. Never be afraid to ask for help. You are not alone.”
The mum-of-two revealed how she ended up on a toilet seat in a hotel clutching rosary beeds trying not to think about killing herself.
It was only an appeal from husband Daniel to go back on her medication that helped Majealla to recover.
She recalled “I found myself with a pair of rosary beads sitting on a toilet at half past four in the morning in a hotel in London rocking back and forth and crying and praying.
“I said ‘Please God don’t let me go down there again.’
She revealed it was Daniel who came to her rescue leading with her to go back on her medications.
“‘He said “Please go back on them and don’t ever come off them again’.
“I don’t think I will. I think that’s it for life.”
