The star explains that during the fall of 2015, she experienced "racing mind, impulsive behavior, [and] insomnia," which gave way to anxiety. The medications she tried in 2016 didn't work for her, and her treatments lead to "up and down" journeys. Eventually, a blood test revealed the vitamin deficiencies.
Bosworth also gave a detailed list of the vitamins she's now taking, and says that she now feels "100% back to normal." She also chose to end her blog post with some words of inspiration.
"Depression and anxiety can be both emotional and physical, and having lived through it, all I can say is that the struggle is worth it," Bosworth wrote. "I'm living proof that you should fight, you should explore, you should take your health into your own hands and be your own advocate, and that you CAN come out the other side with some serious scars, but feeling like a brand new human being."
We're thrilled to see the star speaking out against the stigma that's too often associated with mental illness. Talking about the reality of mental illness is essential, and we're happy to see Bosworth continuing the conversation.
