The former talk show maven shared her experience in dealing with the loss and admitted that living with her ex was a struggle when he started showing signs of bipolar disorder.

& # 39; It was like being at Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde lived, & # 39; Lake explained. & # 39; I wanted to save him, but I couldn't. & # 39;

Lake married Evans in 2012 and divorced in 2015, but she said she stayed close to her ex in many ways.

& # 39; I still supported him, & # 39; said Ricki, & # 39; financially and emotionally. & # 39;

His death two years after their divorce was an emotional blow to the actress and she struggled to cope with the loss.

& # 39; I didn't think I would ever feel happy again, & # 39; she admitted to the magazine.

Since losing Christian, Ricki has been open about her struggle with depression and deep sadness, regularly posting photos of the couple on social media and sharing her feelings with fans.

Earlier this month, on what would have been their seventh wedding anniversary, Ricki shared a moving collection of images on Instagram.

& # 39; After Christian died on 2/11/17 & # 39 ;, she wrote. & # 39; I found among his things that he had saved a draft of his marriage vow for me.

& # 39; He only had one sentence on the page & # 39 ;, I promise to continue to love you. & # 39; Those words are perfect as a reminder that he is always with me and loves me wherever he is, and also a reminder to always love myself. & # 39;

& # 39; I will regret the loss of Christian's beautiful soul every day of my life & # 39 ;, Ricki said. & # 39; But people are resilient. And life is precious. & # 39;

Ricki had colored Christian & # 39; s friend and tattoo artist the words in his own handwriting on her forearm.

This was all part of the healing process of the mother of two.

& # 39; I have to experience real depression & # 39 ;, she told People. & # 39; There were days when I couldn't get out of bed, and that is a very scary place to be.

Add: & # 39; I am so & # 39; n positive person, and not feel that it was paralyzing. & # 39;

& # 39; It's a miracle, but I really feel on the other side, & # 39; Lake told People Magazine.

The last project they worked on together, the documentary Weed The People, became a personal project for Ricki.

The film follows families who treat their children's cancer with medicinal cannabis and Lake called it the & # 39; legacy & # 39; from Evans.

& # 39; I will regret the loss of Christian's beautiful soul every day of my life & # 39 ;, Ricki said movingly to people. & # 39; But people are resilient. And life is precious. & # 39;
