She nearly succumbed to that, but back in season three, she nearly drowned offshore while working on a ferry disaster. It was up Derek to fish her out of the water and get her the urgent medical care she needed to survive.
As Derek and Addison take steps to divorcing, Meredith comes forward with her feelings for Derek only for them to go unanswered.

And everything that happens in between, we owe it to ourselves to find a little company. Cut off from each other. And we forget just how connected we all are. So instead, we choose love.
