Louis CK, who won the Golden Globe Award for Best Comedy Series for his show Louie last year, has not shied away from speaking out about his struggles with substance abuse and mental illness.
In an interview with Vice News on Thursday, the former TV host said he has been struggling with the same problems for the last several years.
“I’ve been dealing with anxiety and depression, and now I’ve got a personality disorder,” CK said.
“It’s been a very difficult year for me.
I think it’s just gotten to the point where I’m really worried about my mental health.
I feel like I’m losing my sanity, and I’m starting to think that I’m going to pass out.
And it’s kind of heartbreaking.”CK said that during his first few weeks in rehab, he felt a lot of the symptoms of PTSD, but that he had been diagnosed with bipolar disorder and anxiety disorders.”
When I was going through that phase, I didn’t feel like myself anymore.
I couldn’t connect with myself,” he said.”
And I don’t want to pass it on to the kids, either.
I can’t just tell them to shut up, I can no longer.”
He also said he didn’t want his children to have to grow up with his struggles, which included spending most of his free time talking on his cell phone, watching YouTube videos, reading the internet and socializing with friends and family.
“For me, I don- I feel so bad about that.
I’m so sorry that it happened to me,” he added.
“I didn’t know how to be the best person that I could be.”
Ck has been open about his substance abuse issues and mental health problems for years, saying he had an addiction to painkillers.
He has also been outspoken about the fact that his family does not support him.
Last month, he told The New York Times he would not have made the same decision had he known he was suffering from substance abuse.
“My parents weren’t going to support me, so I wasn’t going a couple of years ago,” he told the Times.
We are so grateful for his incredible talents and contributions to the comedy world, but he has not always been able to share his experience,” Guginos said in a statement. “
Ck’s wife, comedian Carla Gugino, and his children have all come out in support of him and his wife, saying they would never allow him to be “a bad dad.””
