While receiving an advocacy award from the Hope for Depression Research Foundation in Manhattan last week, the 44 years old star spoke about the stigma of depression and her experience battling the disease. Yes, Brooke shields expressed the true depths of her suffering after giving a birth.

"We think and we feel that we should just be able to handle it on our own," said the actress. "I've always been strong enough to get through every single difficult situation in my life. I grew up in an addictive household. My mother [Teri] had acute alcoholism. It's in my blood. I was never going to be the one to succumb to it."

Shields has two girls, Rowan, 6, and Grier, 3 years old. She gave birth to daughter Rowan in 2003 after a miscarriage and seven IVF attempts. "I finally had a healthy beautiful baby girl and I couldn't look at her," the TV writer Chris Henchy's wife said of her feeling that day. "I couldn't hold her and I couldn't sing to her and I couldn't smile at her ... All I wanted to do was disappear and die."

She told the crowd that it was the week when she almost did not resist driving her car straight into a wall on the side of the freeway. "My baby was in the back seat and that even pissed me off because I thought she's even ruining this for me. I just wanted to drive into the wall and my friend stayed on the phone with me and made me safely get home."
