Exhaustion, Not Psychological Problems Sidelined Carey

Elysa Gardner of USA Today spoke with Mariah Carey, who explained her hospitalization was caused by “a collapse from exhaustion” rather than the more complex psychological or chemical problems.

“Yes, I was in a bad place emotionally, but anyone would be at that point of total physical depletion,” Carey said. “I began seeing a therapist, and he told me, ‘Look, you didn’t have a nervous breakdown. It’s a form of torture not to be allowed to sleep.’ He said I had to start setting boundaries in life, to learn how to say no. It’s taken some people a while to understand that, but now they do. I’ve actually made up contracts that people who work with me have to sign, so they know I must have lunch breaks and dinner breaks and five or six hours of sleep a night.”
