Although she does not exactly narrate the events that led her to that situation, the actress intimates that her mother stood by her through thick and thin and unwavering support that eventually helped her dig herself out of the pits of death and depression. 

"My mum has been my support system, my pillar. She has been the one giving me the strength to keep going. She believes so much in me and loves me. When I got to the point of thinking of committing suicide, I had to go to my mum's place and stayed there for three months to just start afresh. My mum was there the whole time. She didn't even sleep. When I woke up in the middle of the night to go to the bathroom, she would sit up and wait for me."
