Trisha Goddard reveals suicide attempt

Share article:

Trisha Goddard once tried to take her own life after hitting rock bottom.

The 60-year-old TV presenter - who rose to fame in the late 90s for her hit daytime chat show "Trisha" - has opened up about how her mental health issues drove her to drink, and she slit her wrists.

Speaking in a Channel 5 documentary, "Me and My Mental Health", She said: "I'd been running and running to escape all sorts of thoughts.

"It was 3am and skidding thoughts were going over: "You're filth, you're crap, you're no good, you think you're a big shot."

"The next thing I knew I had a knife in my hand. I'd hacked at my wrists. Even now I still don't have all feeling in my arm. It took me almost a year of physio. I did not see that as suicide. I saw that as "make it stop." "

Trisha suffered another near-death experience when she took too many painkillers, but changed her outlook on life after she was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2008.

She said: "The weird thing is that when I got told I had breast cancer and then when I was told it had spread somewhat, I was like, "S**t" I want to live."
