I grew up listening to country music on the Eastern Shore of Maryland. I even watched Hee Haw on Saturday nights. Learning about the iconic group The Judds, was so awesome because I had a crush on the mom. She always looked young and vibrant. She had a patch where she was sick and then she came back stronger singing with her daughter.

Well, she’s sick again and this time I hardly recognized her. Naomi is dealing with depression and that can destroy a person’s life. Almost make it seem as if a person doesn’t have a purpose.

I am so sorry she is having to deal with this at this stage in her life but I am sending up prayers.

From Daily Mail:

Naomi Judd discussed her swollen appearance and other side effects from her life-threatening battle with ‘severe treatment-resistant depression.’

‘I don’t look like I usually look. My hands shake real bad – medication – nothing I can do about it,’ the retired country crooner – who turns 71 next month – told ABC News on Tuesday.

‘And my face, I feel like a balloon. My face is all swollen because the medication. I really haven’t been eating ice-cream and candy. I really haven’t.’

The five-time Grammy winner detailed her several stints in psychiatric wards and more in her new 320-page memoir River of Time (in stores now) co-authored by Marcia Wilkie.

They think, because they see me in rhinestones, you know, with glitter in my hair, that really is who I am. I’m sort of a fantasy because I want to provide that for them,’ Judd explained to Robin Roberts.

‘But then I would come home and not leave the house for three weeks and not get out of my pyjamas, not practice normal hygiene. It was really bad.’

Naomi – born Diana – continued: ‘If I live through this, I want someone to be able to see that they can survive, because there’s 40M of us out there.’

We here at Tell Me Now ask you to pray for this special lady. She has warmed our hearts with her special music for generations and now she needs us.
