Cesar Milan Survives Suicide Attempt

Cesar Milan, best known to the world as “The Dog Whisperer,” opened up to his fans about his battle with depression that began a little more than two years.

Cesar faced some very agonizing hard times back in 2010 when his favorite sidekick “Daddy,” a 16 year old pit bull who frequently assisted him in training troubled canines, passed away. That was only the start of a year full of anguish for the str.

A mere 4 months after Daddy’s death Cesar’s wife filed for divorce putting him in an ever darker place and leaving him feeling alone and hopeless. Cesar’s depression got the best of him and he attempted suicide by overdosing on pills.

“I was at the lowest level I had ever been emotionally and psychologically,” Milan wrote on his blog in August.

Thankfully, Cesar survived the attempt and has since pulled his life back together. He now has a new outlook on life and is doing better than ever.

After surviving the overdose, Millan opted for work, exercise and affection over antidepressants, says AP. And he met Jahira Dar, a woman Millan calls “the one.”

For his fans, Cesar has made a documentary about that dark time in his life that will be broadcast November 25th on the National Geographic Channel. The show is called; Cesar Milan “The Real Story.”
