Jenner recalled in Vogue’s “Open Minded” series,
I remember being really young – I’d say 8, 9, 10 – and having shortness of breath and going to my mom and telling her that.
The KUWTK star admitted to Dr. Ramani Durvasula that her anxiety was worsening as her career grew.
I think being overworked and being in the situation that I’m in now is kind of what set it out of control in a way.
I’ve had times where I feel like I need to be rushed to the hospital because I think my heart’s failing, and I can’t breathe, and I need someone to help me. Sometimes I think I’m dying.
Despite her enormous wealth and fame, Jenner told Durvasula — and the audience — that she is “human.”
I’m still a human being at the end of the day. No matter what someone has or doesn’t have, it doesn’t mean that they don’t have real-life feelings and emotions.
Jenner also revealed that the lifting of COVID-19 prohibitions is increasing her anxiety.
She said she gets anxious when she goes to dinner or sees a couple more of her friends than she’s used to having over the last year.
She seems to have made an exception for her Halloween birthday party, which gathered about 100 guests and drew criticism. After that, Kris Jenner came out and said that everybody had been checked for COVID-19 before the party.
