Remember Lark Voorhies? If you don’t, you should know that she was the one black girl on the old school show, “Saved by the Bell.” She appears to have had a tough life up until this point, and some wondered what happened to her after seeing images that were a far cry from the beauty queen that we once knew.
Voorhies has been having a tough time of it since the show came to an end. While she hasn’t been all that forthcoming about her personal life, she has admitted that she has been diagnosed with bipolar disorder. We don’t know if anything she’s done played a role in the creation of her psychiatric problems or if it’s all innate. Regardless, it appears that she is going to need some help. We certainly wish her the best.
“It’s frustrating… They can’t explain it… I care deeply about my daughter and I want her to resume her life.”
The actress, who has been struggling with the erratic behavior for years, was recently prescribed medication to help deal with the mental illness, but Tricia insists the condition was brought on by a series of undisclosed events, which left the actress traumatized.
She refuses to divulge further details, saying, “I don’t want to go there,” but Tricia adds her daughter was devastated when her career stalled after the show’s final episode in 1993 and her marriage to husband Miguel Coleman fell apart in 2001.
However, she does have hope Lark will pull through: “She’s trying so hard. She says she’s delayed, but she’s going to get there.”
Depression is a serious disease which is often pushed under the rug. If left untreated, depression can alter your way of life.
We hope Lark gets through this.
