Los Angeles – Entertainer Wayne Brady recently opened up about his battle with depression, stating he suffered “a complete breakdown” when he hit rock bottom on his 42nd birthday. As reported by ET, the comedian who is also known for his work on television shows like “Let’s Make a Deal” and “Whose Line Is It Anyway,” admitted that he has secretly battled the condition for years.

Brady is quoted as stating in recalling the troubling time, “I was there by myself, in my bedroom and I had a complete breakdown … Just go ahead and imagine for yourself a brother in his underwear, in his room, you got snot … and that birthday was the beginning of, ‘OK, I’ve got to make a change.”

The entertainer also said that the death of actor Robin Williams, who also struggled with depression long-term, hit it him really hard.

Says Brady of Williams, “He made all these people feel great. And at the same time, knowing that he had this sense of … what I make up in my mind, this low sense of self-worth, of belonging, of loneliness, of pain that all the money in the world can’t cure, all the accolades and awards, and all the love from people all over the world … all that love could still not stop that man from saying, I am in so much pain.”

Brady, who credits his former wife with helping him get on the road to recovery, advised to others battling depression, “Just to admit that you are feeling this way is a huge step. To claim that, to say, ‘Why do I feel dark? Why do I feel unhappy? Let me do something about this.”
