Drew Carey opens up about mental health struggles as a teen: ‘Who’s gonna miss me?’

Drew Carey is just one of many celebrities who have recently shed light on their mental health struggles.

The Price is Right host appeared on an episode of Who’s Talking to Chris Wallace? and shared how the dark days of his late teenage years and early 20s were a call for help.

“I think that suicide attempts were calls for help,” Carey, 65, said of his two attempts. “I was so mad that everybody was having a good time, and I was just tired of my life and who’s gonna miss me? I have a lot of that still, like, ‘Who’s gonna miss me?’ type of thing.”

Carey continued, confessing, “I think when, yeah, like, a lot of times I think to myself. Like, if I die, I’m just gonna have my body cremated. No funeral and anything associated with, like, all my mementos and stuff. You can just burn them and give them away. Like, who cares?”

This isn’t the first time the comedian has acknowledged his battle with depression.

In 2007, he spoke about his darker days, but also emphasized the work he had done to break free.

“I learned how to believe in myself. Learned how to set goals, you know, self help books man. I just read every single one I can get a hold of and I still do. I read that stuff all the time still,” he said. “I am always coming out bigger, better, stronger and happier.”

During his recent interview, Carey shared with Wallace the valuable lessons he learned which help him in the battle against depression.

“Like, don’t take things personally. I took everything personally, if somebody wrote a bad review, I’d be like, what the hell? Coming after my money? You know, so yeah, that’s — all that’s gone.”
