Diane Patrick Feels 'Incredibly Strong'

This article is more than 12 years old.

First Lady Diane Patrick says her husband's gubernatorial campaign left her exhausted, demoralized and diminished.

Patrick spoke Tuesday at the Greater Boston Chamber of Commerce's Women's Network Breakfast.

She says shortly after Deval Patrick was elected, she crashed emotionally, which was made even more difficult because she suddenly was in the public eye.

She credits the governor and others people who supported her during her depression with helping her to heal. She says she now feels "so incredibly strong.''
