Doc Gooden says he fell into a "massive depression" after his mother died back in July -- but says he's now feeling great thanks to church and the right medication.
The ex-Mets pitcher sat down with Brandon Steiner in the wake of Darryl Strawberry's allegations that he's a "complete junkie addict" whose life is in danger.
"[I'm] feeling great," Gooden said ... "And I think the things that happened in the last couple days is a test to really see where I was at."
Gooden says he went through a tough time in the wake of his mother's passing -- but says, "I seek help for that, dealing with depression with that, got some great medication, things started going up."
"I'm fine. I'm healthy. I haven't done anything wrong. I haven't broken the law or anything like that."
