Fergie does not want to erase her past.
When I was a pop member Wild Orchid in the early 2000s, Fergie started using crystal meth. At its lowest point, "I had [suffering from] chemically induced psychosis and dementia. I was hallucinating on a daily basis," the 42-year-old singer, "A Little Work," told the iNews United. Thursday. "It took a year after I stopped taking that drug so the chemicals in my brain would calm down, so I stopped seeing things, I would just be sitting there, seeing a random bee or rabbit."
Fergie believed that the CIA and the FBI and a SWAT team was tracking her, so she sought refuge in a church. "They tried to kick me out, because I was moving through the corridors in this crazy way, because I thought there was an infrared camera in the church trying to verify my body," he recalled. "I ran down the aisle into a hallway and two people were chasing me, I remember thinking, 'If I walk out, and the SWAT team is out there, I was always right, but if they're not there, then it's drugs. they make things look and I'm going to end up in an institution, and if they really are drugs, I do not want to continue living that way anyway, anyway. " I left the church, obviously, there was no SWAT team. It was just me, in a parking lot. It was a moment of liberation. "
It's a story that Fergie has told again and again, most recently, in a September interview with London Evening Standard ." After walking to LA's Wilshire Boulevard, she began "See demons everywhere." Yes, she knows that sounds crazy. "I'm very open about what I call my" dark period ". I went to a church and I had this epiphany. It was a crossroads. The drugs I was taking were driving me crazy, "Fergie said." I was definitely seeing things and talking to them. "
Fergie told Oprah Winfrey in a 2012 interview that she used drugs for about a year before getting sober. "What helped me was a lot of therapy, deep search, finding out why I took the drugs in the first place, because that's really what it is," he said, adding that he first experimented with ecstasy before try crystal meth At its lowest point, she weighed around 90 pounds. "With any drug, everything is great at first, and then slowly, her life begins to spiral around."
In her interview with iNews, Fergie added: "The drug thing, it was very funny … until it was not like that. But you know what? I appreciate the day that happened to me. Because that's my strength, my faith, my hope for something better. "The fact that she's alive to tell her story today is nothing short of a miracle." It's so amazing, I know, "Fergie said. I must have guardian angels. "
