“We came from a dysfunctional family system that didn't work very well.
So the kinds of things that happened to me are very typical and standard and indicative of a family system that doesn’t work very well.” In her book, Judd recalls being in middle school when her mom started dating her current husband, Larry Strickland, and writes about the ways that relationship affected her.
The country superstar can’t help but laugh when she tells the story. I’ve sung with some of the greatest artists of all time.
Appearing live with Meredith Vieira on TODAY Tuesday, Judd said that the goal of her book was to explain the humanitarian work she does for numerous charitable organizations around the globe, but believes she needed to divulge her own backstory in the process.“I looked really good on the outside [but] I had a lot of anxiety and insomnia, and I realized eventually that I was really powerless over my childhood, and the coping strategies that I developed had made my adult life unmanageable.” In therapy, Judd uncovered repressed memories of being sexually abused by a family member (she doesn’t name the person in the book), and also circumstances that led her to consider suicide before she was even in her teens.Judd writes about playing with her mother’s gun as a child — loading the bullets into the chamber and holding it to her head. I took to playing with mom’s gun, trying to decide if it would be worth it to shoot myself ...” she wrote. I would expertly check the chamber, load bullets, give it a spin and with a jerk of my wrist click the chamber into place, cock the trigger and then hold then gun to my right temple.Despite stepping out of her famous family members’ shadow and becoming a star in her own right, Judd told Vieira she “was sick and tired of being sick and tired.“I just didn’t know quite what was wrong with me,” she said.
