"Sitting here reflecting on the past two weeks. I had no plans of what I was going through being public BUT now that it is I have a made an even BIGGER commitment to the mental health awareness area.

"So many people are suffering, hurting, hopeless, lost and don't see a way out but there is. Depression sucks, but my faith in God and my commitment to doing the work to stay well is my way out! You have to do the work even when you're tired and feel the heaviness. Take one step at a time!"

And she urged people to be suffering from depression not to 'overwhelm' themselves and instead, celebrate little victories.

She said: "Don't overwhelm yourself. If you can just get up out the bed and brush your teeth and shower.....DO IT. For people dealing with depression, that is a HUGE step."

"Now don't be depressed AND stinky.....pick a struggle! (y'all know I had to add some humor)."

And she revealed to her fans that Tina Knowles and Beyoncehad recently visited her making dinner.
