Diagnosed with depression in her late teens, the comedian has also struggled to find the right medication dosage. She continued:

“That is torture because you’re messing with your brain chemistry. It’s messy. It’s ugly. But you have to find what works for you. I did find what worked for me. I was able to move forward because it stopped the negative tape that is playing... That’s when everything opened up...when I finally got help for that.”
