Katie Price has opened up about her stint at The Priory earlier this year as she confessed she begged doctors to save her from her suicidal thoughts.
The 42 year old, who recently said her son Harvey "doesn't understand" why he doesn't visit his dad, explained that she ended up at the mental health care facility after experiencing "severe trauma" from horrible internet trolls.
The mum-of-five said she's worked for everything she has and simply doesn't understand why people can't support her in her relationship with Carl Woods, 31, and in her general life now.

Speaking to MirrorOnline, she said: "Why can't people embrace and think, 'You know what, she's been through s**t and hell and back'.
"What people seem to forget, I am a working mother of five, I've never taken any money off the government, I've supported my kids, everything I've done I've done myself, and people still manage to slag me, they never actually see the good bits. All I've ever wanted, I'm old fashioned and I just want to be in that family unit, that's all I want, that fairytale, it's all I've ever wanted."
The former glamour model, who is reportedly being driven around in an "untaxed" Range Rover with "incorrect number plates", continued: "Everyone deserves a chance, I hit rock bottom and guess what, I got myself out of that rut because why? It's all I had left of me to do.

"I could have gone in a box, in a coffin, in the ground, which was where I wanted to be, but because I had the kids and I had that little bit of strength in me to think, 'Kate, look around you, look what you can have, look what you've achieved in your past, get that energy and re-spark it'."
The star went on to explain that she checked into The Priory to ask doctors to stop her from killing herself as she said: "The best thing I did was think, 'Kate you can do it, you're strong, forget everything else', and I did.
"I went to The Priory and booked in and said, 'I don’t want to leave here, I want to be an inpatient, help me to sort out my head, this is my last chance to do it, I don't want to die, I don't want to kill myself, help me'."

Katie now feels better than ever and it's mostly thanks to her Love Islander boyfriend Carl as she said: "And it's the best thing I've ever done, I feel so good now, that's why I feel I've met Carl now because I know what I want, I know what I deserve, and when I'm happy the ship runs well."
Katie later added that she was never in The Priory for rehab but for "severe trauma" that she developed due to online abuse.
"I was in The Priory because it's a build up of all this s**t that I've had, this abuse, this mental abuse," she said.

"That's why I ended up in The Priory. It was nothing to do with drink or drugs. I don’t know why everyone said I was in rehab, I've never been in rehab in my life.
"I was never in The Priory for drink or drugs – ever!
"It was severe trauma rehabilitation, and I still speak to the doctor weekly now because that's what I want to do because there are lots of things that have gone on in my past that led me up to that."
