    Heartbreaking. I love the way Ashley explains depression as the liar that wouldn’t allow her to believe all the good things. So true.

      @Doc Holliday Your arrogance again is telling as you no nothing of me, similar to what you know of the other poster who you so unceremoniously offered unwanted advice. You sound like you talk to others with the same inner dialogue you use on yourself. I’ve heard it often before. Coping mechanisms are important but not the only tool or support necessary to heal and cope with depression. Believe it or not YOUR experience is not the one in the world which is why depression and mental illness is so poorly understood. Most people are so self centred that they can’t see beyond their own experience in order to find empathy for others. I sadly interpret this as a desperate need to make sense of the world and their place in it.

      Oy Ashley dear I hope you find peace. You speak beautifully about your Mom. How I wish her beautiful property and surroundings could have gi ven her the calmness and strength to live. God bless you and help you smile every day.

    "the lie that the disease told her was so convincing" is probably the best way I've heard this described. I feel for them so much. Losing a loved on this way feels like you never really stop grieving. I hate that they are forced to publicly address this before they're ready to or even that they have to publicly address it at all.

      In Ashley's book, she literally speaks about a number of times she herself felt this way and tried as a child. I imagine talking about the families struggle is therapeutic for her respective journey. All the woman in this family have serious mental health challenges, so it makes sense they're speaking out. I mean naomi also wrote about her struggles, so I think she'd approve if it could save someone else.

      This is heart wrenching and courageous. As someone that has had family member commit suicide and fought depression myself, my heart breaks for Naomi, her girls and Larry. She was a beautiful soul (probably an empath so she couldn’t shut off the pain and felt it for others). She helped so many people so I hope that brings her daughters a measure of peace knowing how many lives she touched.

    Ashley speaks so eloquently on such a tremendously difficult, personal and heartbreaking situation. My heart breaks for her. I pray the public is respectful and allows them their privacy. The Judd's deserve our admiration and respect. Naomi Judd was truly amazing, talented and generous. I did not know until Ashley shared it in this interview that her mother would routinely and quietly give $100 bills to those in need. A star not just on stage but in her humanity. Rest in peace.

    Ashley has taken upon herself one of the most difficult tasks in the celebrity world. The family obviously realizes what a nasty world this can be … especially social media. My heart goes out to her and to them all. What a brave daughter she is. We who suffer from mental diagnoses are helped by the openness of her admission. It reminds us that we are not alone just as our Lord has told us repeatedly. The way Ashley expressed that her mother was “walked home” speaks to our minds and hearts.

    The fact that this family had to go thru this because society doesn't know when you simply let people be is so heartbreaking. No one should ever have to go on national TV and explain what happened and how simply to get ahead of people just looking to make a dollar off of a story. We have truly lost respect and empathy and it's disgusting. My heartbreaks for them and I pray for them, depression, anxiety and all other mental health conditions are no joke and just because people may seem strong may just be a mask to get thru it another day

    My heart hurts for Ashley, Wynonna, Pop and the rest of the family. Having lost my brother to suicide, I identify with their grief. I will never understand why 15 years later my brother chose to end his life. Someone told me after he died, "You're not supposed to understand, it only made sense to him. You can armchair quarterback all day long and think you know, and you may never make heads or tails of anything." I feel for her and the entire family. I don't understand their grief and I am not attempting to. I identify with them. Rest in Peace, Naomi. Sending deepest love and respects to her family.

    I can not imagine under any circumstances her mother asking her to stay with her and for her to come back into the room to find her mother dead like that. It’s one thing to have to cope with your mother passing away by suicide it’s another thing to be the one that finds her minutes after seeing her alive. That is so unbelievably heartbreaking and gut wrenching.

    I'm glad the sisters have each other, especially going through the storms and challenges we all face in life. Wynonna and Ashley will need each other, like never before. Also, I pray for Ashley, being the one who found her mom, that she moves on and can put behind the thoughts & visions of that tragic day. Ashley has always reminded me of her mom. They are soft spoken and have that natural beauty coming from the heart and pours out, making them such beautiful people. Naomi passed on beautiful parts of herself, to her daughters, especially her kind heart & beauty. May they find peace, especially in the coming days. I pray for Pop as well. He has great memories of the time he & Naomi spent together as a couple. God Bless your family.

    I lost my wife of ten years toward the end of 2019 after a long struggle with depression and substance abuse. It was a very similar situation. Though she was struggling at the start of our relationship, we found happiness and stability for a while and most of our time together she worked as a peer support worker who helped others with those same issues, touching countless lives, shining a light through the darkness of despair and hopelessness. I ask myself why I'm still here, why I carry on, knowing everything she did to help others, yet in the end ultimately being unable to help her escape her own despair. I suppose the life and love we shared is just another verse in this beautiful song of hope that will keep playing on forever. As utterly painful and difficult as it was to lose her, I'll always remember the beauty she brought to life.

    Ashley is a pillar of strength to give this interview at such a difficult time (and attend the HoF awards the day after witnessing what happened to her mom). As someone who has suffered from depression & traumas, I don't think it's necessarily that Naomi felt unloved or unworthy (maybe a bit of the latter from abusive experiences when she was younger). Perhaps, it was the constant aching numbness & sadness that goes along with chemical depression? I heard Naomi comment in interviews, the depression began after her Hep C diagnosis and having to quit touring, which gave her such joy! I wonder if it's possible that Hep C altered her body chemistry, even though she survived it? She fought so hard for so long! Rest peacefully, dear Naomi. 🙏😢

    Living with depression is like walking with a 50lb bag of rice on your back everyday. It's a dark rain cloud that follows you around while the sun shines on everyone else. I deal with it everyday and listening to Ashley describe what her mother has lived with hits home. The bully that depression is will have you thinking tat you're worst than gum on the bottom of someone's shoe. I'm hoping that the family can come to peace with this and know that they did everything they could.
    More research needs to go into studying mental illness as it cuts across all racial, socioeconomic and culture lines. It is actively breaking apart families and it is not being taken seriously. It is so hard with insurance to even find a qualified therapist and if you're one of the millions, not insured.......
    This was a great interview and i'm glad she was able to set the record straight in her own words.

      @Cece Giles clinical depression is like a trick your mind plays: you think you’re depressed because you feel blue. But in truth it’s just faulty brain chemistry causing the illusion of depression. Now, depression actually caused by an event, like your dog dies, that’s circumstantial depression. Clinical depression is different, it’s perpetuated entirely inside the mind. The worst part of that is when people don’t know they have it and they think there’s some outside cause, and they end up blaming someone else or blaming themselves. Peace.

      Wow. You are so amazingly correct. My cousin Juan committed suicide. He had a lot of issues on his plate but he had hundreds (no exaggeration) of people that loved him, in which he touched their hearts and influenced. Looking from the outside one wouldn't understand but I realized he was hurting inside. I miss him so much and if anyone met him they'd have loved him.

      @Cece Giles
      I have been depressed similar to Naomi, I went to the edge but I didn't go over. I'm blessed because I'm able to pray when this darkness comes upon me, God answers, and lessens the episode. I wish I could appropriately describe the feeling but for me, I fight it every day. It is a dark, dark foreboding feeling, a dread, it renders me immobile. I've learned to live with it but you get tired of dealing with it on a daily basis and you wouldn't wish it on your worst enemy. Some days are good that is when I'm on a high but after I come down I feel dreadful.
      Therefore I believe, Naomi couldn't take it anymore, and I doubt she was selfish or in her right frame of mind. It is very sad, I feel for both sisters and although I don't know her, I've internalized her death because I've been there and lost my cousin and a friend to this disease.

    Oh, my heart! Ashley is most eloquent when speaking of her mother. She and Wynonna will no doubt honor Naomi’s legacy by continuing to destigmatize and bring awareness to the disease of mental illness. May this family stand strong in their faith and in their love for one another.

    It breaks my heart that Ashley, a woman who has been public and candid about being in recovery and in rehab for CHILDHOOD TRAUMA AND NEGLECT, had the burden and devastation of finding her mother in such a horrific way. I can’t comprehend why Naomi chose that moment knowing Ashley would find her that way in minutes.
    I know I’ll get haters defending Naomi and that’s fine. Naomi is dead, but Ashley is left to live with even more unspeakable trauma. I’m very worried for Ashley and I send my deepest sympathy and prayers to her.❤

      There is a fine line between “I’m in so much pain I just want to die” and “I’m going to kill myself” and the line is blurry to the mentally ill. They often cross it accidentally. They don’t mean to be selfish, they just don’t know how to deal with depression anymore. They go too far but they don’t know they’ve gone too far. The illness lies to them but those lies are all they know.

      When Ashley was writing her autobiography she had the manuscripts sent to Naomi while she was on tour to read. It brought her to tears saying it was all true. Wynona made her out to be a bad mother numerous times, even resenting her for having to babysit Ashley while she was always gone. I hope they realize that as a single mother, she was doing the best she could to provide for them instead of also falling into the trap of depression over what they call childhood trauma

      Rosie, I wonder that as well, but the person suffering is in such an altered state of mind they're not thinking clearly at all. I was always the one who discovered my own mother after her many unsuccessful attempts to take her life. I suffer from depression now. I feel for Ashley. I still cannot wrap my head around her mother doing it in that manner. Hugs to you.

      People are confused and severely distraught when suicidal. They often do plan who will find them...but not usually out of spite....they are thinking of the one that loves them even when they screw up or let them down, who will forgive or understand their deep anguish, the nuturer or peacemaker of family...and they die feeling at peace...reassured that the "right" person will make sure all necessary deeds, words, wishes...are done correctly. Is it fair to the person that finds them? No! But it is not clear logic, but a heartfelt knowing...that the loved one they "chose" to find them, will be the strong person to lead family forward....So hard to be that "chosen" person, someone who is expected to "fix" everything, make others understand....such a hard, sad ending for all. God bless this family of surviviors!

    What a brave thing for Ashley to do. She shows us what love truly is - even when it is clear her heart is broken. Being there, finding her mom, I just want to take her in my arms and tell the family this.
    As much as people think suicide is selfish, it is not. Imagine being in a burning building with no way out except to jump to your death below. The pain is psychological and physical, intolerant with seemingly no end in sight. You don’t want to live because it’s so painful, and you don’t want to die because you don’t want to hurt your family. But the pain gets so bad when you aren’t getting better, that you just feel a constant burden on those around you. That hurts enough to push you out the window because depression really manipulates your brain into believing that they are so much better off without you. The ultimate act is one of selflessness, giving your loved ones the freedom from their worry and concern over you.
    I hope Winona, Ashley, and Naomi’s family find the peace that they deserve. She sounded like a lovely human being. Love and healing to you all.

      You said it perfectly. My brother killed himself and I thought for years it was a selfish act but it wasn’t. There are other depressed people in my family who have said those words, “You will be better off without me, I’m just a burden.” It’s terrifying to hear but speaks volumes about what’s going on in their mind.

Please don't take this as a condemnation of you or your family but when someone is hiding their depression its usually because they don't think they will be comforted by a family member or friend if they share how bad it really is. As someone who lives with depression once I mustered the courage to share with a sibling how bad things were the response was, well that's to bad, try to get over it, you know there are so many people who have it worse than you. It was crushing I vowed never to share with anyone ever again how dark it gets. I hope you have found peace and know your loved one didn't want to cause you pain they just couldn't bear their pain one more day. God Bless

Her words of description from savage to unpenetrable (sp?) made me think about others who suffer depression and I didn’t see it this way. I didn’t see it as a shell worn that good cannot penetrate. Mental illness has to be a focus. We need people to understand and see this isn’t just someone laying on the couch….I thank her for her bravery and eloquence in helping me and hopefully others actually see how debilitating this disease can be. May all who suffer know we hear you and there is help. Thank you Ms Judd. Thank you.

    My heart breaks for Ashley and Wynonna. I can't imagine Ashley discovering her mother. I'll just be praying for them and their family. Mental illness is real. It is not just someone having a bad day.

    Ashley is a pillar of strength to give this interview at such a difficult time (and attend the HoF awards the day after witnessing what happened to her mom). As someone who has suffered from depression & traumas, I don't think it's necessarily that Naomi felt unloved or unworthy (maybe a bit of the latter from abusive experiences when she was younger). Perhaps, it was the constant aching numbness & sadness that goes along with chemical depression? I heard Naomi comment in interviews, the depression began after her Hep C diagnosis and having to quit touring, which gave her such joy! I wonder if it's possible that Hep C altered her body chemistry, even though she survived it? She fought so hard for so long! Rest peacefully, dear Naomi. 🙏😢

    I live in the small town that they live in. In fact, I’ve been here my whole life. Let me tell you, I have never heard an unkind word about any of these women, and Naomi had a very special place in our community. Sometimes, when people pass away, lots of kind things are said about them that aren’t always true. Not in this case. The words of kindness that people are sharing about Naomi are completely true. I, too, share the struggle of dealing with clinical depression, as well. I am very fortunate in that I respond really well to treatment, and I can only imagine what a gut punch it would be to have medicine/standard treatment do nothing to ease my pain. My heart goes out to the family, and further more, the entire community because everyone is really hurt by this absolute tragedy.

    Naomi, like so many, battled her mental illness for decades and unfortunately lost her life to it.
    I hope this opens up a larger conversation about the impact mental illness has on not only the individuals who are cursed with it, but how it effects their loved ones.
    As someone who is a mother who has bipolar disorder, this is my greatest fear.
    I never want my little girl to feel the weight of what I struggle with, but I also want it to be talked about in a healthy way so she can understand that it is many people’s reality.
    So that she may have empathy and understanding for other’s experiences, and to know that if she ever finds herself in that dark hole that is depression she is never alone.

      “woke liberals pushing gay agendas and critical race theory”?

      Please, keep your negative comments to yourself.

      @Little Brown Gal You just made my point for me. 20 years ago it was not normal for people to be dealing with the mental illness that we have today. As psychologist Robert Leahy points out: “The average high school kid today has the same level of anxiety as the average psychiatric patient in the early 1950s. Im on the front lines so have a clear understanding. I have 85 employees every summer mostly young adults. 10 years ago I never had a kid say to me he was depressed or had anxiety today its every other kid. Thank cell phones, social media and woke liberals pushing gay agendas and critical race theory for making good kids feel guilty about who they are.

    In the midst of her grief, she is so well spoken. This was heart wrenching to watch. Mother-loss is one of the hardest, let alone to lose one’s mom via suicide & be the one to find her. Prayers that God keeps a loving hand on the whole family.

    This is tragic enough for any family. It is no one's business at the end of the day. They deserve all the respect & privacy that any family would. I don't care of their spot light and notoriety. Rest in peace Naomi & may your family be able to heal in time with privacy & respect from everyone!

    Hits so deep, this is such an overlooked normalized disease, I relate personally and my mother is dealing with the same, I guess that’s why it hit home so hard, it’s what I worry about for her but I know better so I try my best.
    You are not alone, we are in this together.
    Naomi, I feel you and I understand, you went on for so long, such strength will echo, I didn’t know much about you but I won’t forget you. This is important.

    Thank you to Diane Sawyer for treating Ashley Judd with the sensitivity and compassion she so deserved during this heartbreaking interview. That Ms. Sawyer did not press Ms. Judd with prying questions is evidence that she cared about Ms. Judd's well-being rather than getting an exclusive story about what had been a horrific situation.

    I’ve had family members who started their second journeys from the disease of mental illness. I’ve witnessed firsthand how the disease can be a roller coaster ride. Seeing this solidifies the fact we are not alone and together we can help one another. It’s takes time and professional help, but we power through one day at a time. Sending prayers to the Judd family and all those affected by this illness. 🙏🏼

    This is so heartbreaking 💔 I’m in tears watching this one as that can relate to losing a parent to mental illness and suicide. It is one of the most tragic ways anyone goes through, mental health is a serious illness and I know because I myself also deal with and live with mental illness. I also tear up for Naomi and her two daughters Wynonna and Ashley. This whole situation is so heartbreaking for the family. The world lost a truly loved talented person who had the voice of an Angel and the heart of one too. God bless them and prayers for them.
