Sharon Osbourne needed some serious time to get both her mental and physical health together.
Sharon, 63, revealed she was severely depressed and had a breakdown last May during Monday's episode of The Talk
. After the incident, Osbourne took an emergency month-long hiatus
from the CBS show. At the time, her rep told ET she wasn't feeling well, and "collapsed from mental and physical fatigue" following a grueling schedule in New York and Toronto.
Sharon says she wasn't ready to talk about the exact reason behind her break during the season six premiere of The Talk -- as was originally planned -- but now feels she has a "good grip" on her condition.
"It's very weird when you suffer from a bad depression… I had a complete and utter breakdown," she candidly says. "I woke up in Cedars-Sinai hospital. For three days, I couldn't talk ... knew nothing. I was taking on too much... my brain totally fused. I just couldn't cope with anything."
Eventually, Sharon says she was moved into another facility after being told that the hospital wasn't equipped to deal with mental issues.
"My family put me into a facility and in this facility they diagnose you, and you do a lot of group therapy," she shares. "The group therapy was the best, because there were other people suffering from the same thing. I didn't want to talk, didn't want to eat, didn't want to speak to anyone."
Sharon says it took her about seven months to get on the proper medication, and credits meditation, yoga, and finding spirituality for getting her back on the right track.
"Go to group therapy, ground your body and soul," she advises those going through similar issues as her. "It’s nothing to be ashamed about. If you had a bad leg, you tell everybody you had a bad leg. I just have a bad head."
"We keep it inside," she adds about dealing with depression. "Now, I know what to do. I can talk about it. I felt alone and didn’t know how to describe what I was going through."
Last year was rough for the mother of three health-wise, as she had hernia surgery in March 2015 and then caught pneumonia. "Her doctors report that she is suffering from 'extreme exhaustion' and assessed that she most likely returned to work too soon after being hospitalized recently for pneumonia," her rep told ET about her month-long leave.
Of course, 2016 has also brought its fair share of drama for the Osbourne matriarch. In May, she temporarily split from her husband of 34 years, Ozzy Osbourne, following his affair with celeb hairstylist
Michelle Pugh. In August, the 67-year-old Black Sabbath rocker said he suffers from a sex addiction
and has been undergoing intense therapy.
"He's working at it," Sharon emotionally shared on The Talk
after the news broke. "It's hard, because it affects the whole family ... I'm proud that he's come out and admitted it finally."
