Months after Lamar Odom's near-fatal drug overdose, his estranged wife, Khloe Kardashian is speaking out about how the former NBA star's medical crisis took a toll on her life.
As Radar reported, Odom was found unresponsive in a Nevada brothel in October 2015. When Kardashian learned of his dire state, she rushed to be by his side, and took charge of his medical care. "Mentally, it took its toll," the 31-year-old reality star told People of the overdose. "But it wasn't about me. I realized how much it was about Odom so I didn't think twice about it."
However, Kardashian's mental state was not the only thing that was impacted by the overdose --- her rigorous workout schedule also had to be placed on hold."Normally, when I'm going through stuff, I have my release of energy or stress at the gym," she said. "But I literally didn't leave the room for a month. I wasn't sleeping as well." The star continued, "I was stuck in a room with my thoughts. My mind didn't have that release. I was like, 'I can't breathe!' "
To top it all off, the pampered beauty also sacrificed her personal hygiene to stay by Odom's side. "I went a week without showering," she admitted.
Now, however, Odom is out of the hospital, and Kardashian is back in her routine.During her recent book tour, she flaunted a flirty new haircut and revealed that she is down 40 pounds from what she weighed three years ago.
