Dwayne Johnson Opens Up About Struggles With DepressionCelebNHealth247.com has the latest regarding Dwayne Johnson who recently opened up about struggling with depression and living with a mother who was also going through the motions.

Dwayne Johnson saw his mother attempt to take her own life aged just 15 years old and that really affected him.

Now, Johnson has been opening up once more, speaking about his own struggles and how he saw his mother attempt to take her own life aged just 15.

The former world wrestling champion Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson declared to Speaking with the Express:

Struggle and pain is real. I was devastated and depressed. I reached a point where I didn’t want to do a thing or go anywhere. I was crying constantly.

Dwayne reveals that his mother Ata tried to kill herself in front of him, months after they were evicted from their apartment.
She got out of the car on Interstate 65 in Nashville and walked into oncoming traffic. I grabbed her and pulled her back on the gravel shoulder of the road.

He also revealed that he was at an all-time low after his football career ended due to numerous injuries. He turned to the WWE next, which was a doorway to make a lateral move to acting, but that didn’t make his struggles go away:

We both healed but we’ve always got to do our best to pay attention when other people are in pain. We have to help them through it and remind them they are not alone.

When a fan recently told him he was suffering depression, Johnson wrote back:

I hear you. I’ve battled that beast more than once.
