She agreed with Taraji that she was in the fog.
Tamar added, “I could hide it enough, barely pull myself out, and then I return to the same toxic lifestyle without dealing with everything that has happened to me before and what is happening all the time, right? I barely slipped by day by day, you know I only felt suffocated because there was no escape. I just didn’t see any other way out … I wanted to die, everything went wrong. ‘

She continued with the time that led to her attempted suicide, in which she was separated from her family and even from her son Logan.
“I had no relationship with my family, I was estranged from my sisters, including my mother, and worked with my family. We had no healing time. My relationship with my fiancé at the time was out of control, I saw no sign of anything. The relationship with my child was shallow, which means that I check in but not actually check in. I would make him something to eat, but I didn’t know if he would like it, you know what I mean? and with myself I put on 50 pounds so I didn’t recognize myself anymore. That should have been such a big sign to me that something is WRONG, that things are not going well at all. ‘
Taraji assured her that she was not alone in her fight. The actress gave her a long hug when she started crying.
While it was heartbreaking to hear, Tamar’s story can resonate with others and lead them to seek help.
