She captioned the video, “Mental Health Week is every week for me. Off my chest. I feel like I haven’t been completely honest, so this is for my followers. It’s time to be transparent. I’ve been fighting since Bridgerton, that’s the truth. Thank you all for supporting me, your love supports me. #mentalhealthawareness.
In the video, she says, “I’m better. I have been very sick for a very long time. I just want to be honest with everyone – I struggled. I am in the hospital at the moment, I will be discharged soon and I hope to be able to continue with my life. I want to encourage others: if you are having difficulty, do yourself a favor and take a break. Stop being so hard on yourself. It’s crazy here! And sometimes you just have to pause and say, “I can’t do this right now, I need support.”

I carried the weight of the world on my back and now I’m at the point where I have a diagnosis, I’m drawing a line in the sand. I can’t go on as I was, I need to change, that’s what I’m trying to do. I want to survive and I will survive, I will.
