Wynonna Judd found it difficult to determine “what’s next” following her mother’s death.
The 58-year-old celebrity rose to popularity together with her mother Naomi, who committed herself in April at the age of 76 after struggling with depression.
As a member of the 1980s country music duet The Judds, Wynonna said that as soon as she received the news, she hurried to the hospital to “say goodbye.”
“I received the call, I walked over, I saw her, and that was all,” she said. In the hospital, I said her farewell, kissed her forehead as she closed her eyes, and that was all.
And before I know it, I’m sitting here on the front porch, on the side porch, you know, just trying to figure out what’s coming up.
The singer of “Love Can Build a Bridge” continued by saying that, despite her mother’s lifelong struggles, she was unaware that she was in such a depressed state at the time of her death. She acknowledged that this is the “difficult” of living with a person who struggles with mental illness.
She stated: “I did not realise that she was at the position she was at when she terminated it since she had had episodes previously, and she got better.” This was mentioned in a teaser clip for an interview that would air on “CBS Sundays.”
The difficulty with mental disease is that. It’s really enigmatic. And that’s the world I inhabit: Was there anything I should have known or searched for? Not me. That is why it’s so shocking.
