But the upcoming Christmas holiday and the reality of the year she was ending began to overwhelm Brooke.

"She wants to put 2010 behind her. Brooke used to love Christmas, but because of what happened last year with Charlie, she began to get very, very depressed recently. Even though it's a year later, Brooke is still dealing with the emotional scars of it," a family insider tells us.

"The fact that Brooke recognized she was beginning a downward spiral, and wanted to stop it before it got out of control, is a very positive step for her. Brooke wants to be the best mom possible for Bob and Max. Being the best mother possible to them is what her motivation is."
