Proud to partner with @MediaplanetUSA on their recently published Opioid Awareness campaign, which sheds light on the opioid epidemic in the U.S. My family has been deeply affected by opioid use, and it is my goal to change the conversation about the unfair stigma attached to addiction.

“I was joking about this but I shouldn’t, talking about my depression, and it’s like, you know saying, ‘Oh, the first time I tried to kill myself was OK, the second — all right, the third time, oy!’” she said.
“But it’s like, I’m still here. I still do what I do and you struggle,” Osbourne added. (RELATED: Ozzy And Sharon Osbourne Split After 33 Years Of Marriage)
The 66-year-old talk show host has been open about her struggle with depression in the past and has it under control thanks to medication, but still works to be mentally healthy.
“I wish everybody could think flowers and daisies and princesses, but you can’t,” she said.
Osbourne first revealed her fight with depression in 2014, while the co-hosts of “The Talk” were discussing Wayne Brady’s battle with the mental health disease.
“Excuse me, 16 years … been on medication,” Osbourne said.
“Some days are better than others, and some days you feel like you just want to pull the sheets over your head and just stay in that bed and not do a damn thing … except rot,” she added.
