After years of consulting with doctors and experimenting with numerous medications, Carson finally found the mood stabilizer she is currently taking.
“I’ve been stable and haven’t had a breakdown in 10 years,” she says.
Since returning to Hollywood in 2014, she says, “Just being at a place where I am healthy, excited about life and auditioning is a joy. I feel very blessed.”
Carson hopes her story can help others. “It’s a risk for me to be open,” she admits. “I never wanted to breathe a world about what happened to me. But I’ve had a change of heart. It’s rare for someone who has something as severe as I’ve had to come out the other side, but I’d like to let people know that you can. You can get to the other side.”
