Kendall Jenner is opening up about her own struggle with mental health, revealing that she has suffered from anxiety since a young age.

“I remember being really young,” Kendall shared. “Like, 8, 9, 10…and having shortness of breath and going to tell my mother that. In hindsight, I know that that was…anxiety.”

Speaking to psychologist Dr Ramani Durvasula for Vogue’s ‘Open Minded’ series, Kendall went on to explain how her symptoms can become physical. “Being overworked and being in the situation I’m in now kinda is what set it out of control. I’ve had times when I think I need to be rushed to the hospital because I think my heart’s failing and I cannot breathe,” she explained.

On top of this, the 25-year-old made it clear that she knows she leads a good, privileged life, but that some people presume this means she doesn’t have problems.

“I mean, there are going to be those people that say, like, “Oh, what does she have to worry about? What does she have to be anxious about?” I’ll never sit here and say that I’m not fortunate — I know I live a very privileged, amazing lifesyle; I’m a very blessed girl. I still have [a brain], and that thing up there…is not always happy and it’s not always connecting…no matter what someone has or doesn’t have, that doesn’t mean they don’t have real-life feelings and emotions.”

Sharing a snippet of the interview on her Instagram, Kendall wrote: “I have struggled with anxiety and panic attacks since i was a little girl. I wanted to dive deeper to better understand what I was feeling but more so, to share this information with others who may struggle too.”
