Fox News contributor Bubba Watson is sharing his battle with mental health and says a prescription drug he was taking in 2013 resulted in his recent collapse in the Bahamas.
Watson, 35, was seen on a chartered flight yanking up the skirt of a female passenger he claimed kissed him on the nose last September.
The argument later turned physical and resulted in a $25,000 airport fine, but Watson said he’s learned from his experience.

Speaking to the Players Championship Players Radio Network, Watson said when he tried to get a prescription for medication for depression, he was told by his doctor that it is now illegal and he had to deal with it on the street.
“One night I woke up and I was afraid to go to sleep,” Watson said. “My wife wakes up in the middle of the night scared of me and she said, ‘What are you doing? We’re going to go to the police, you’re going to jail for drinking.’”
“I just wake up and I’m not sure why I’m waking up in the middle of the night,” he continued. “So I go, ‘I’m going to get help. I’m going to get it.’ And I don’t take it. And that’s when I realized that was part of the problem.”
Watson said he’s been able to hold a good balance now, citing behavioral therapy.
“If I have a bad anxiety attack, I go on the internet and read books, watch videos,” he said. “I did that for like two years. I kind of had a battle to hold myself together. I was fearing death.”
