Last night rapper Kid Cudi took to Facebook to reveal he is in rehab for depression and suicidal urges. He wrote,
“It’s been difficult for me to find the words to what Im about to share with you because I feel ashamed. Yesterday I checked myself into rehab for depression and suicidal urges. I am not at peace. I haven’t been since you’ve known me. If I didn’t come here, I wouldve done something to myself. I simply am a damaged human swimming in a pool of emotions everyday of my life. Theres a ragin violent storm inside of my heart at all times.”
“Idk what peace feels like. Idk how to relax. My anxiety and depression have ruled my life for as long as I can remember and I never leave the house because of it. I cant make new friends because of it. I dont trust anyone because of it and Im tired of being held back in my life. I deserve to have peace. I deserve to be happy and smiling. Why not me? I guess I give so much of myself to others I forgot that I need to show myself some love too. I think I never really knew how. Im scared, im sad, I feel like I let a lot of people down and again, Im sorry. Its time I fix me. Im nervous but ima get through this.”
His words really got to me, my heart broke when he said, “I feel ashamed.” I’m glad he’s getting help and sharing his story with not just his fans but with everyone.
