Former WWE superstar Kaitlyn is opening up about her battle with drug and alcohol addiction … saying she’s turned her life around after “wanting to die” at her lowest point.
Kaitlyn — real name Celeste Bonin — shared her story on the 1-year anniversary of checking herself in for a drug detox.
“I remember getting out of the hospital feeling like death, with a medical taper plan of meds and thinking, ‘What have I done to myself?'”
“I celebrated my 30th birthday 5 days later and I remember wanting to die.”
Kaitlyn says a lot of people get hooked on those detox meds … but she instead turned to alcohol to deal with her depression and anxiety.
The former Divas champ didn’t detail exactly how she overcame her addictions — or the drug(s) she was hooked on — but says she’s been able to rebuild her life in the time since.
Kaitlyn left off with a message for anyone in her shoes — “Never be too proud to ask for help. Be able to wake up and look at yourself in the mirror.”
