Hollywood star Kathy Griffin took to social media to link former President Donald Trump to her deteriorating mental health. Kathy said she was recently diagnosed with complex PTSD. She said:
“This is going to sound, whatever, you can laugh or whatever, but I’ve been diagnosed with complex PTSD. They call it an extreme case. Never talked about this publicly.
“But it is extremely intense. I’ve never experienced anything like this in my life. If you’re someone who also deals with this, I am sending you lots and lots of love. If any of you know my story, you’ll understand that this really started for me about five and a half years ago.
“Wink. You know, the cancer didn’t help. Today, I felt like one might be coming on.
“So, I’m on my walk now, and I’m outside and looking at the ocean, which is helpful.
“And I’m sort of almost like mid-anxiety attack right now. It feels good to be walking my way through it. I just keep telling myself it won’t last forever.”
She said on Instagram
Griffin had lung cancer a few years ago. Half of her left lung was removed.
She said on Instagram:
“I put this effect on because it kind of shows how Im feeling. God help me, but I am bringing this topic to Instagram.
“I don’t know if this topic is appropriate for Instagram because TikTok is more of a vibe where you bare your soul and don’t wear make up and stuff.
“But this got a lot of response from people who relate. So I’m just gonna tell you.
“I have been diagnosed with complex PTSD and for the last year and a half I have been plagued with terrifying panic attacks.
“Sometimes they last a few hours or more typically, they last at least a full day if not multiple days in a row.
“I feel silly even telling you this, because I always thought PTSD was just for veterans and stuff.
“During my attacks, I typically vomit quite a bit and often have to go to the ER just to get IV fluids.
