Oprah Winfrey Reveals She Suffered A Near Nervous Breakdown Last Year!

It happens to the best of us!

No, really. If it even happens to the mighty Oprah Winfrey, it really happens to the best of us!

The media mogul has always been more than above average in the busy department, but everything almost came crumbling down for O last year.

She explains feeling worrisome symptoms, saying:

"It was just sort of speeding and a kind of numbness and going from one thing to the next thing to the next thing. I thought, 'if I don’t calm down I’m going be in serious trouble.' I was in the middle of doing voiceovers, you know? And I remember closing my eyes in between each page because looking at the page and the words at the same time was too much stimulation for my brain."

Awww, O!!

That sounds awfully frightening!

According to her, the realization of what was happening came in October 2012, when she was interviewing Kony 2012 director Jason Russell and learned more about what led to his now infamous public breakdown.

She recalls:

"I was sitting and listening to Jason Russell describe his symptoms …. saying, 'Um, this sounds pretty familiar to me.' I had reached a point where I just couldn’t take in anymore stimulation.

Gurl was full of stimulation, indeed!

Not only was she fighting hard to keep her OWN network up to her standards, she was filming Lee Daniels' The Butler.

Good thing she recognized the problem when she did!

We'd never want to see our dear O in anything too troublesome. She knows how to battle anything, but we'd rather not be worried about her well-being. Stay strong, gurl!!

    Oh please. I don't feel one bit sorry for this racist cow who has millions and millions of dollars, and personal assistants at her beck and call, and the (fake) respect of those in the entertainment industry who say they support everything she does because it's PC to say it; I wish someone would sew this hypocritical, hate-mongering darkie's mouth shut.

    So retire. Or scale it back. Oprah has the option to do whatever she wants. Save your sympathy for those who have no choice but to over work.

    she can fuck her own fat ass. when she's standing in a bread line, or deciding whether to feed her family over paying the electricity bill, then she can complain, and not until!

    Well I have only watched her a few times when I did jury duty, but she seems OK. Hope she is feeling better.
