Holly Hagan Opens Up About Panic Attacks And Reassures Fans "You Are Not Alone"
This week marks Mental Health Awareness Week in the UK, and Holly took the opportunity to reveal painful details about her own struggles with her 3.5 million followers.
The 24-year-old posted a pic of herself a few years ago having a right ol’ laugh with Geordie bestie Charlotte Crosby, but was quick to explain that things weren’t quite as fun irl as they may have looked in photos.
“Look how happy I am and how much fun we're having! 5 minutes before this was taken I was in Charlotte's arms unable to breath having one of the biggest panic attacks of my life,” Holly explained, before going on to describe exactly what it felt like to be gripped by anxiety.
Our gal had some words of comfort for anyone who might have similar mental health problems, though, reassuring them that “There's always someone listening whatever you're going through you are NOT ALONE.”
She also told fans that she’s happier than ever right now, and can’t even remember the last time she had a panic attack.
Hol’s determined to stop the stigma around mental health, and we couldn’t love her more for it. Mental health can be super hard to talk about, so every celeb who chooses to speak out is hopefully inspiring other people to do the same.
And now... Why not watch a vid of guys & gals trying to correctly label the female reproductive system? Go on, you know you want to...
