On Friday's episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Sarah Hyland of Modern Family revealed the struggles she's been going through the past few years.


The actress, who plays Haley Dunphy in the ABC hit series, sat down with Ellen to discuss her health issues.

The now 28-year-old discussed her struggles with kidney dysplasia and endometriosis and the tolls the conditions took on her physical and mental health.

She went on to admit that she had struggled with suicidal thoughts.

"At the time I was 26, but after 26, 27 years of just always being sick and being in chronic pain every single day and you don't know when you're going to have the next good day, it's really, really hard."

She continued to tell Ellen just how serious her dark thoughts were.

"I would write letters in my head to loved ones of why I did it and my reasoning behind it, how it was nobody's fault. I didn't want to write it down on paper because I didn't want anybody to find it. That's how serious I was."

This is not the first time the actress has opened up about her struggles with mental health.

At the end of last year, Sarah told Self about her kidney transplants.

Hyland received her first kidney transplant from her father in 2012. In the fall of 2016, her body began rejecting the organ.

After going on dialysis, her brother Ian stepped up to donate one of his kidneys.

He said,

"When Sarah first told me that she would need a second transplant, the initial wave of fear was washed over by a sense of resolution. I only cared about Sarah knowing that I had her back and that she was going to be OK."

Sarah didn't have the same sense of resolution.

After her first transplant was rejected and she was looking at getting a second transplant, her mental health began to waver.

"I was very depressed. When a family member gives you a second chance at life, and it fails, it almost feels like it's your fault. It's not. But it does."

Sarah's bravery to talk about her struggles has inspired people everywhere.










Thank you for your bravery, Sarah! We wish you health and happiness.

Some of our possessions are no-brainer, have to have them, best things in the universe. Others are total beaters, through and through liabilities, that should have been trashed years ago.

But what about those possessions that fall right in between?

In the age of the internet, sometimes it can be very cool to hate on things just because other people do. Bandwagons can be fun, right? But honestly, not all of the things hated on actually deserve it. Save your hate for things that actually call for it.
