Hailey Bieber Just Got Candid About How Her Mini Stroke Has Impacted Her Life

"It was so terrifying, so jarring, so discombobulating in every single way that you could imagine."

Hailey Bieber is opening up to fans, sharing how her mini-stroke in early 2022 is impacting her current life.

But now Hailey has revealed a challenging aspect of the stroke which she held back on sharing before. Confessing she has been suffering with PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) ever since.

Explaining on Run Through With Vogue podcast: “I struggled with a lot of anxiety after. I struggled with a little bit of PTSD, of just like the fear of maybe it was gonna happen again.”

Continuing: “It was just a feeling that I was, like, I never want to experience that ever again. I mean, it was so terrifying, so jarring, so discombobulating in every single way that you could imagine.”

Hails also shared how the experience is still “really hard to talk about” but she is “open to talking about the experience if it could help somebody else.”

Confessing that even her YouTube video explaining what had happened to fan after the incident was very difficult to film.

Saying: “Even the [Telling My Story] YouTube video that I had made for my YouTube channel was hard for me. It brings back the feelings for me of going through that experience. It gets easier, and easier with time to be able to talk about it.”

Luckily Hailey is starting to feel like herself again, and was quick to share her gratitude for the people who helped her get there.

Saying: “I’m just really grateful that I was able to have had amazing doctors, and nurses, and people that helped me get to the bottom of what actually happened.”

“I look back at it and it could’ve been so much worse. So many worse things could have happened in that moment,” she added.

Back in March 2022, it was revealed the Hailey had been rushed to hospital but the details were kept under wraps, with a statement being released saying she had experience a blood clot in her brain.

A month later Hailey revealed she had suffered from a ministroke which caused her to lose her speech temporarily, saying there were three possible causes for it.

“I had just recently started on birth control pills, which I should’ve never been on because I’m someone who suffers from migraines anyway, and I didn’t talk to my doctor about this. The second thing is I recently had COVID, and then the third thing is I had recently gone on a very long flight. I had flown to Paris and back in a very short time.”

Going on to warn other people who may be considering contraceptives if they suffer from migraines she added: “So ladies if you suffer from bad migraines, and you plan on being on birth control pills, make sure you tell your doctor, because having a stroke is a potential side effect from birth control pills.”
