Cassandra Thorburn has shared her struggle with mental health during her marriage with Karl Stefanovic.
Speaking on her podcast Divorce Story: Surviving Separation this week, Thorburn said she sought professional help during an “awful time” in her relationship with the Today show co-host.
“When I was having a really awful time in my marriage, I went to my GP, and requested a mental health plan,” she said.
“Because relationship stress has such a huge impact on your health and mental health, I was able to get 10 [therapy] sessions at a very reduced rate.”
She also said she had trouble carrying out daily tasks following the separation.
“You get yourself out the door with the kids to go to school … I had children, they had to go to school,” she said.
“You get them there. I would literally crawl to the back door and lie on the floor until it was time to pick them up again.”
Earlier this week, Thorburn told The Kyle and Jackie O Show she was “glad it’s not me” when she found out Stefanovic was expecting a baby with Jasmine Yarbrough.
“I thought, ‘I’m glad it’s not me!’” she said. “To be honest, that’s all I thought.”
Thorburn and Stefanovic ended their 21-year marriage in 2017. They share three children.
