Things have been crazy for Khloé Kardashian!

ICYMI: Last week, the KUWTK starlet opened up in an interview about her estranged husband Lamar Odom‘s recent overdose and intense recovery process.

In fact, the blonde beauty has remained by the former NBA player’s side through most of his medical crisis — despite her family’s urging otherwise.

She shared:

“Just recently I’ve been in the hospital for almost three and a half weeks straight, and finally everyone was saying, ‘Khlo├â┬⌐, you have to get out of the hospital and just for an hour, go to the gym and do something that’s for you. Nothing’s going to happen to Lamar.’ I had such anxiety going to the gym, but as soon as I left, and Kendall and I worked out with my trainer, I felt like, ‘Oh my god, I’m okay. I’m a human again!'”

Well that’s good to hear! We can only imagine what an emotionally draining time that must’ve been for Kris Jenner‘s daughter. Sometimes you just need a moment to yourself!

She continued:

“I just felt so good. But for those three-and-a-half weeks, I didn’t think about the gym because I was thinking about other things, and I don’t beat myself up about it.”

It seems as though staying fit definitely kept the reality TV star’s head on straight during such a traumatic time. Not to mention, working out has become a therapeutic process for the starlet since initially filing for divorce from Lamar.

She added:

“I was going through a really difficult time in my life, and I was just figuring out if I was going to file for divorce or not. It wasn’t about weight at all. It was that I needed a stress reliever, and I didn’t know where else to go where I felt alone and safe, but I still wanted to be around people. My house obviously had all of these emotions and things in it … [The gym] was just the safest place where I still got that emotional release.

Then the side effects started happening. I started losing weight, and I started really enjoying the workout process. It was definitely gradual and it took time.”

LOVES it! We think KoKo should send her family a nice thank you basket of mini-muffins.

Our thoughts are with the whole Kardashian/Odom clan as Lamar continues to recover!
