LOS ANGELES, Nov. 5 (UPI) -- Sharon Osbourne revealed she's been battling depression for the last 16 years while speaking on her talk show The Talk on Monday.

"Some days are better than others," Osbourne said. "And some days you feel like you just want to pull the sheets over your head and just stay in that bed and not do a damn thing -- except rot."

Osbourne spoke about her issues with depression while discussing Wayne Brady' recent revelation that he struggles with the disorder as well. After her comments, co-host Aisha Tyler said its important for people with depression to speak out about it because "so many people suffer in silence and they feel alone."

"So many people are going through this, we have to destigmatize it," she said. "It's a disease like anything and can be medicated and can be treated."
