London: Courteney Cox has totally immersed herself into her hit TV comedy `Cougar Town`, hailing the show as her `saving grace` to tackle her `crazy` personal life.

The former `Friends` star announced her trial separation from Arquette last year, as the couple are still working on their marital problems.

Though Cox says she is dealing with the increased paparrazi attention, she does not always find it easy to cope.

"I`m kind of used to it, but as I get older I`m getting probably a little more sensitive. So it might be harder in some ways. Obviously, my life is kind of crazy right now and I`m getting a lot of that (media attention). So it`s probably a little harder for me to be used to it," she said.

However, the 46-year-old actress has fully immersed herself into work putting her personal issues aside despite concerns from director Bill Lawrence, Contactmusic reported.

"Thank God for the show. There have been times when Bill has said, `Are you all right? Do we need to take a break?` I`m like, `Are you kidding? This is my saving grace,`" she added.

Meanwhile, Arquette has checked himself into a rehab at the start of the year in a bid to tackle his alcohol issues and depression following the split.
