Naomi Judd’s Passing After Years Battling with Mental Illness
From Nats.news By Natalie Keshing May 2, 2022
Poignant and profound, Naomi Judd’s daughters, Ashley and Wynonna said of their mother’s passing, “We are shattered. We are navigating profound grief and know that as we loved her, she was loved by her public. We are in unknown territory.”
Some people choose to die from a broken heart. Others choose to die when unbearably battling a cancer diagnosis that has metastasized throughout the body turning into a very painful illness. And some choose to die when they are tired of very painful memories mixed with very beautiful memories. We cannot judge because we cannot understand their emotional, physical and mental state of mind and deep profound pain.
It is shockingly sudden. In an instant, those loved ones left behind are in the most pain because they feel if only they had done or said something to change the course of their dearest departed.
And that’s the hardest part about death because it is so final. It’s the end of a life always worth living and looking forward to for the given time on this earth.
Every life changed during the unnecessary shutdowns because of the COVID-19 pandemic. We were all suddenly thrust into uncharted territory.
Some people were already going through a very difficult and painful period of depression. The shutdown only exacerbated those overwhelming feelings and emotions of depression.
Some of our young teenagers with all the imbalance of hormones, peer pressure, school studies and problems at home were driven to do the unthinkable. Parents were left shattered and inconsolable.
It seemed that every family’s personal and dysfunctional problems at home were being experienced to a higher intensity. And they were because many of us were lost in our day to day lives trying to keep up with work, children’s school activities, going to the grocery store, fixing meals, washing dishes, cleaning house and even going out for take out and battling traffic driving our stress hormones to the limit during this pandemic. Some families lost their livelihoods and income from successful businesses they had invested and worked very hard to be successful. After businesses closed some people moved to find work to support their families.
We were never meant to experience trauma at this level. Suddenly, all our lives were shutdown and many marriages landed up in divorce. It was the tipping scale that sent many over the edge and they decided to start a new life. Which isn’t easy for anyone under any circumstances.
People who experience trauma usually are diagnosed with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, where people feel high anxiety and are traumatized by reliving previous traumatic events and memories.
Some depression can be caused by a chemical imbalance in the brain. Anti-depressants can help make those connections in the brain and balance the neurotransmitters like serotonin, dopamine, and nor-epinephrine. Going for counseling therapy can help tremendously as well.
There’s an additional important factor relating to the COVID-19 virus. These are experimental genetic altering shots the government deceptively called vaccines which have killed or permanently disabled millions of people. People have started to get seriously ill with adverse affects from these experimental shots.
Most women were so drawn to Naomi for her ability to share with her fans and audience the challenges in her life and how she learned through therapy and lots of reading to cope with traumatic experiences in her life. She was a very smart lady and both her daughters are as well. In the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s many women were going through trauma in their marriages or relationships through domestic violence. Naomi shared about this in her very young life and also that she was sexually molested as a child by her uncle.
Naomi Judd, one half of the country duo The Judds, died, they say by suicide after years of struggling with mental illness, multiple sources tell People.
Naomi’s daughters, Wynonna and Ashley, said they lost their mom to “the disease of mental illness,” in a statement released on Saturday. Naomi was 76.
Naomi and Wynonna were inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame on Sunday.
“I didn’t prepare anything tonight because I knew mom would probably talk the most,” a tearful Wynonna, 57, told the audience at the Nashville ceremony. “I’m gonna make this fast, because my heart’s broken, and I feel so blessed. It’s a very strange dynamic, to be this broken and this blessed.“
“I’m sorry that she couldn’t hang on until today,” a crying Ashley added.
Earlier last month, Naomi and Wynonna had announced they would reunite for a celebratory final tour that was set to launch in September.
“Today, we sisters experienced a tragedy. We lost our beautiful mother to the disease of mental illness.”
None of us shall ever forget Naomi Judd. Rest in peace Naomi for now you are at heaven’s gate with all the love your daughters admired you for making their life better for them and teaching them how to love and appreciate all their blessings. Good night, my fair lady. You left behind a treasure of love through every one of your’s and beautiful Wynonna‘s songs ~ Natalie
