Sept. 29, 2019 – ‘I want to take this time to talk about mental health,’ she wrote in a screenshot of text. ‘I’ve been so ashamed of some of my mental health issues that I haven’t even wanted to tell friends.’ She continued: ‘I’ve suffered from crippling anxiety since I was 4 years and gone to therapy since I was a kid and I am so grateful for what therapy and psychoanalysis has done for me. ‘I’ve worked on myself and continue to do so. I deal with past trauma, some more recent than others. ‘My anxiety has stopped me from living the life I wanted to lead. It was a cage I was stuck in and still struggle to get out of. I got on medication such as Lexapro which helped a great deal. I opened up about it and got the help I needed. ‘I was told by a doctor ”you don’t have to live this way” and he was right. I’ve also struggled with substance abuse, due to my anxiety it led me to Xanax and I’m proud to say I’ve been clean and sober off of pills for 110 days.
