Actress Catherine Zeta-Jones believes her bipolar disorder brought her closer to husband Michael Douglas.
The Welsh actress said she got to know herself and her 68-year-old actor husband, with whom she shares daughter Carys, 9, and son Dylan, 12, better during the tough period, a media report said.
"It's been an intense time, in good ways and bad. You find out who you really are and who you're married to. You find things inside yourself you never imagined were there.
"You can't escape what people say, and if you're human it can be painful. The smartest thing I did was to stop going online. I'm the sort of person who will just look for the negative," she said.
The 43-year-old actress is now hoping to remove the stigma attached to mental illness by going public with her diagnosis.
"I'm not the kind of person who likes to shout out my personal issues from the rooftops, but with my bipolar becoming public, I hope fellow suffers will know it is completely controllable.
"I hope I can help remove any stigma attached to it, and that those who didn't have it under control will seek help with all that is available to treat it."
