Kendall Jenner is opening up more about her intense struggle with anxiety.
The model, 25, spoke about the issue in a new video chat with licensed clinical psychologist and professor of psychology, Dr. Ramani Durvasula, for 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," Jenner said.
The Keeping Up with the Kardashians star explained that being part of such a famous family and growing up on reality television did not help.
“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,” she said.
“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," noted Jenner, who said she can be a “real hypochondriac.”
“Sometimes,” she added, “I think I'm dying.”
Despite her personal battle with anxiety, Jenner doesn’t expect any sympathy.
“I'll never sit here and say that I'm not fortunate. I know I live a very privileged, amazing lifestyle. I'm a very blessed girl,” she admitted.
However, she said, “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.”
