Kendall Reveals Her Struggle: “I wake up in the middle of the night and I can’t move.”
The 20-year-old bravely shares her battle with anxiety
It’s easy to see beautiful young stars on social media and think they’ve got the best lives EVER. But it’s so important to remember that millions of Instagram followers and flights on private jets don’t make celebrities immune to depression and anxiety.
In a preview for next week’s episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians, Kendall Jenner reveals a major health issue. “I wake up in the middle of the night and I can’t move,” she says. When her mother brushes it off as anxiety, Kendall responds, “I’m done arguing with people because I don’t feel fine and I promise you one day when I’m rushed to the hospital, then you guys are gonna wake up.”
It’s not surprising that both Kendall and Kylie have struggled with anxiety. They weren’t even in their teens when their daily lives started being shown on TV, and they’re probably the most scrutinized sisters in the country. So the fact that they’ve both shared their struggles is not only brave; it’s inspiring – and comforting. Watch the preview for the upcoming episode of KUWTK below.
