Catherine Zeta-Jones refuses to suffer in silence from her recent bipolar diagnosis and is using her experience in hopes to help others in her situation to seek help to overcome the mental illness.

She spoke out in the latest issue of People magazine about her bipolar disorder and not being ashamed for checking herself into a mental hospital for treatment.

In her interview with People magazine, Catherine encourages others suffering from the condition to seek help and go for treatment so they can get a healthy state of mind.

Friends revealed that when her husband Michael Douglas was battling throat cancer, she was so depressed she could barely do the littlest things like go out to dinner or even get dressed. Then even when he was getting better, she was not, which is why she decided to check herself into a mental hospital.

Catherine says this is a disorder that affects millions of people and that she’s one of them. She doesn’t regret that her secret got out and hopes her experience with bipolar II encourages at least one other person to seek help.

    Just as crazy as your mom telling you “you’re not my son anymore” when your 13 years old just lik emy mother did years ago. Catherine Zeta Jones maybe bipolar and I’m glad she’s doing well, but there’s nothing worse then having those words said to you and for many years she was a very sick lady (since I was born) and died a very sick lady (never having had a life), so bipolar is bad, but there are worse mental illnesses or just as bad. Still, mental illness does rob people of their lives and it can have a profound effect on others as well which they carry for years (like it had for myself).
