Gail Porter - Gail Porter At Home After Suicide Attempt

Gail Porter is recovering at her London home following an alleged suicide attempt.

The TV presenter was reportedly taken to hospital and detained under the Mental Health Act after she was discovered in the bathroom of her north London property with multiple cuts to her arms and chest on Wednesday night (18.05.11).

Gail, 40, was discharged from the medical centre on Thursday (19.05.11) and allowed to return to her home in Belsize Park with her boyfriend Jonny Davies, 25.

A Met police spokesman said: "Police were called to an address in Belsize Park at approximately 21.00 hours on Wednesday following concerns for the welfare of a resident.

"A woman was detained under the Mental Health Act and taken to a medical facility."

Gail's eight-year-old daughter Honey is staying with her father, former Toploader guitarist Dan Hipgrave, while the star recovers from the incident.

In 2005, Gail took an overdose of pills when her marriage to Dan imploded, and shortly after the ordeal, she began to lose her hair and was diagnosed with alopecia.

Although her blonde locks began to grow back in 2010, she sadly started to lose her hair again in January and made the decision to start shaving her head.

Gail, i know how you feel. I have felt so low that I have attempted suicide myself in the past. I know people may criticise you for doing this when you have a young child, but as you know, when you get as low as this, logic and reasoning go out the window. I remember being in A & E after my suicide attempt and a nurse whispered in my ear, 'You are nothing but a selfish bitch.' I felt bad enough at the time without being judged negatively by somebody who's supposed to be helping me. But these feelings of despair will go away, and life will get better. nothing lasts forever, sadness, happiness, good times and bad times, nothing stays the same, and everything moves on eventually. so hang on in there, and these feelings of self hatred will go. all the best for the future. you may not want to look ahead or feel you can't go on, but happiness is just around the corner waiting for you.
