Justin Chambers Opens Up About Sleeping Disorder

by at . Comments

Justin Chambers said in an interview this week that a longtime sleeping disorder led him to check in to UCLA's psych ward earlier this year.

"It's an issue that I've had for a while," the Grey's Anatomy star tells People magazine exclusively in his first interview since the incident.

"It's a biological sleep disorder," he added. "Your mind keeps racing, and your body is tired. It wants to go to sleep, but it can't."

Justin Chambers and Keisha Chambers

Justin Chambers, 37, who has five children with his wife, Keisha Chambers, 38, says in the two months prior to checking in to UCLA, he was sleeping no more than an hour a week, and reached the point where he absolutely had to act.

"I got to my wit's end," he says.

His public comments follow a somewhat scary article in Star Magazine detailing Justin clearly struggling with his condition during a trip to Palm Springs.

It's hard to say what's just rumors and what actually took place that night, but it's good that Justin Chambers is getting help for this serious medical condition.

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

Nobody's memory is perfect or complete. We jumble things up. We lose track of time. We are in one place... then another and it all feels like one long, inescapable moment. So, what does it mean? What do we take away? Which pieces will haunt us? Hurt us? End us? Inspire us? It's just like my mother used to say, the carousel never stops turning. You can't get off.

Meredith

We're all going to die. We don't get much say over how or when, but we do get to decide how we're gonna live. So, do it. Decide. Is this the life you want to live? Is this the person you want to love? Is this the best you can be? Can you be stronger? Kinder? More Compassionate? Decide. Breathe in. Breathe out and decide.
