Christina explains why she used wine and sleeping pills to self-medicate.

Christina:
It’s the simplest thing – I needed to, I very much was a closet person, and I wanted to escape the quickest I can, to get to the next day. I mean, after working, I am at work and I am around people. When I get home, I am by myself watching my Lifetime, watching, you know, whatever kind of movies I can watch.

And so I would just take some sleeping pills or whatever I can to just enough that I would not wake up during the middle of the night because I would wake up with hot and cold flashes, mood swings, crying spells, and I wanted to get on to the next day as quick as possible.
