multiple sclerosis.The “Dead to Me” actress, 52, said that she’s “in a depression right now” on the June 4 episode of her “MeSsy” podcast with “The Sopranos” alum Jamie-Lynn Sigler, who also has MS. “Like a real, f–k it all depression where it’s kind of scaring me to a little bit because it feels really fatalistic,” Applegate continued. “I’m trapped in this darkness right now that I haven’t felt like… I don’t even know how long, probably 20 something years.”Applegate candidly admitted that she has a negative outlook on her life because of her health struggles.“This is being really honest…I don’t enjoy living,” she said. “I don’t enjoy it.
