Speaking on the Zombiemum podcast, Denise recalled the time she got on a plane with Matthew to visit her then husband Tim Healy, who was working out there on a project, only for her depression to worsen as the trip began.
Denise explained: ‘The night before I went, this massive depression came on. I cannot tell you what it was like to go the airport and get on that plane with this depression.
‘When I was in the air – I told Matthew this years later when he was a grown up, I would never have put this on any child – I wished that the plane would go down.
‘In my mind, I wished that it would, because then I wouldn’t have made the decision.’
She added: ‘It was the point I wanted something out of my control and I thought, “Why doesn’t it just go down and then I will be out of this pain.” Now I can’t believe I had those thoughts.’
The lyrics include: ‘Well we got a plane, going to see my dad again/ She prayed that we fell from the sky/ Simply to immediate the pain.’
Denise also revealed that she has always been honest with her children about her depression, meaning they grew up with a lot of empathy for mental health issues after watching her go through it for 32 years.
