Carrie Ann Inaba on Bad Reaction to Antidepressant
While discussing Kayne West revealing he's recently gone off his medication, guest co-host Carrie Ann Inaba opens up about her personal story of depression. "There was a time, a few years ago when my father died, four days before "Dancing With The Stars" started, and I went through a whole bunch of problems. I moved and my fiance and I broke up, and I had to go on antidepressants," recalls Inaba. "You can't judge people for being on meds because it's very personal and you have to make the choice that is right for you. I want to share something, when I took the med it caused me to have this weird hallucination of me stabbing myself over and over again. I was lucky that I was healthy enough and had a good support system that I could say, "What is this? It doesn't feel like me.' Then I changed the meds; I was on them for three months. They helped me find a new homeostasis and remember what it felt like to feel good... for me it was very helpful, even though I had some struggles."
