Christina Applegate feels like she is "dying in the desert".
The 'Samantha Who?' actress is planning to embark on a quest for self-fulfilment this year, comparing herself to a desperate traveller in scorching conditions.
She said: "It's about finding happiness and joy, as if it were water and I was a person dying in a desert. You have to search for that."
Last year, the star underwent a double mastectomy operation after being diagnosed with breast cancer. Her on-off boyfriend Lee Grivas also died due to an apparent drug overdose.
Speaking about 2008, Christina said: "You can't get any darker than I went."
The 37-year-old actress is determined to recapture her positive outlook on life this year and is starting by getting into shape.
She said: "I missed running so much. I'm looking forward to running more."
Christina has previously said her new lifestyle will see her living out her days in a luxurious location.
She said: "I started looking for a beach house the day I found out I had this little disease. You just kind of go, 'What are you waiting for to get the things that you want and the things you dream of?' "
