I would take anxiety meds and hope not to wake up.”

She explained that her husband, Josh Mckee, wasn’t exactly supportive of her dark period. “I was in the bathtub and Josh took the kids,” she confessed. “I definitely needed him, but I was pushing him away. He would come home from work and I would be crying and I would threaten suicide. He couldn’t handle it.”
