Actress Taraji P. Henson reveals she contemplated suicide during the COVID-19 lockdown

Hollywood actress, Taraji P. Henson is opening up about a "dark moment" she had during the COVID-19 Pandemic.

Speaking on her Facebook Watch series, Peace of Mind with Taraji, the actress said she contemplated taking her own life while discussing mental breakdown with co-host Tracie Jade and licensed psychologist, Dr LaShonda Green.

She said “During this pandemic, it's been hard on all of us, and I had a moment. I had a dark moment, I was in a dark place. For a couple of days, I couldn't get out of the bed, I didn't care. That's not me. Then, I started having thoughts about ending it. It happened two nights in a row. I could go in there right now and just end it all, 'cause I want it to be over. Finally, I'm talking to one of my girlfriends and I knew, I was smart enough to say, 'I have to say it.' Because a part of me was ashamed. I was like, 'I don't want them to think I'm crazy. I don't want them to obsess over me or think they gotta come and sit on me. So one day I just blurted it out to my girlfriend. She called me in the morning and I was like, 'You know I thought about killing myself last night. Oh my god, I feel so much better. I'm not gonna do it now. what scared me, is that I did it two nights in a row. And the thoughts kept coming. Now I started thinking about how. At first, it was like, I don't want to be here. And then I started thinking about going and getting the gun. And that's why when I woke up the next morning, and I blurted it out. Because I felt like after a while it was going to take over me and it was going to become a plan because that's how strong my brain is. Our thoughts… They're that powerful
