Then when DeGeneres asked if Sarah had ever considered taking her own life, the NY native admitted, "Yes".

"At the time I was 26, but after 26, 27 years of just always being sick and being in chronic pain every single day and you don't know when you're going to have the next good day, it's really, really hard", she said on the show.

Appearing on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, she said: "I would write letters in my head to loved ones of why I did it and my reasoning behind it, how it was nobody's fault". I didn't want to write it down on paper because I didn't want anybody to find it. "I didn't take it super serious because he lived in Nashville", Hyland explained.

"It ended up being myself that got me out of that", the actress shared. I think I need to really do this on my own and really do even more digging and soul searching.'...

"So I texted him being like, 'You need to come out to L.A.by the end of the week, or this is never gonna happen, '" she told Ellen.

She adds, "Just saying it out loud helped immensely because I kept it to myself for months and months at a time". "Because if they knew, then they would try and persuade me differently". "Every person with their anxiety, or depression, or suicidal thoughts, every individual is different. You can just talk to me'". "But I think talking to someone and saying it out loud really, really makes it sound nearly ridiculous and it puts it into perspective".

"Modern Family" star Sarah Hyland opened up about struggling with depression amid health battles. The condition required a kidney transplant in 2012, one made possible by a kidney donated by her father.

'I was very very very very close, ' admitted the actress.

"When a family member gives you a second chance at life and it fails, it nearly feels like it's your fault... and it's not. It's not. But it does".

Following a series of surgeries, the 28-year-old "Modern Family" star debated suicide because she didn't know if she'd ever feel well.

Hyland also noted that anyone struggling with suicidal thoughts shouldn't be ashamed to ask for help.

And now, nearly two years on from the second procedure, the four-time SAG Award victor says she's feeling much better and can now enjoy her life, including vacations to Mexico with her boyfriend of over a year, Bachelor in Paradise's Wells Adams.

But finally a friend advised her to seek therapy - and Hyland said just the process of articulating how hopeless she felt helped her. "It's not a shameful thing to share".
