Andrea Russett Opens Up About Struggle With Anxiety: Mental Health Is So Important

Andrea Russett has taken to Instagram to reveal her rough couple of weeks dealing with anxiety.

The YouTuber and actress shared that she has trouble asking for help, but wants others to know that they’re not alone, and it’s nothing to be ashamed or embarrassed about.

“i’ve been having a reaaaally rough couple of weeks with anxiety,” she wrote. “it started to feel like anxiety had more control over my life than i did, and rather than asking for help i bottled it up and tried my best to pretend it wasn’t happening. i was getting about three hours of sleep a night, canceling plans with friends, and avoiding everyday tasks. yesterday i finally hit a point where i knew i needed to address it for what it is. i have anxiety. but i am not my anxiety.”

“it has felt like every month it has slowing raveled more and more out of control and every day tasks became more and more overwhelming,” Andrea continued. “but im making the conscious decision to acknowledge it, and find a healthy way to combat it. i’m posting this because for myself at least, i struggle with asking for help out of fear of no one understanding what i’m going through or feeling. so if you feel similar to this in any way, you’re not alone. and you’re going to be okay. be kind to yourself. mental health is so so important and never anything to be ashamed or embarrassed of.”
