Ireland Baldwin is sharing more about her anxiety attacks.
The 26-year-old shared photos of herself this past weekend of her sitting on the bathroom floor as she tried to calm herself down.
“It’s ✨anxiety attack time✨,” she began her post. “This morning I had one cup of coffee on an empty stomach which turned into an anxiety attack! I am currently writing this from the bathroom floor.”
“I usually sit here like this or lay in fetal position until I can’t cry or throw up anymore. Coffee is [a] major esophageal irritator and reflux trigger for me which leads to anxiety. If you are an anxiety sufferer like myself, coffee isn’t your friend,” Baldwin continued.
“Writing this and being open with y’all about my struggles helps it pass. If coffee makes you s— your pants and makes you experience this, please share below,” Baldwin wrote.
In 2015, Ireland spoke more about her panic disorder and has “relearned what it truly means and what it feels like to be truly present.”
“There are so many moments I have taken for granted in this life due to my lack of presence,” she captioned a photo of herself.
“I have overlooked countless blessings and opportunities to start fresh, and I have neglected, manipulated, and lied to the people I hold dear to my heart, but more importantly, to myself … For the longest time, I lost compassion towards almost everything I previously cared for and I was so lost in darkness, that I could hardly hold a real conversation with another human being long enough before I was due to have an anxiety attack and find my way out of it,” Ireland noted.
Just last month, Ireland revealed that she has a blood pressure machine as a precaution to prevent her from having a heart attack.
“This is not an ad for a blood pressure machine. This is not an ad at all. I am posting this for whoever suffers with anxiety and anxiety disorders like I do,” she explained in an Instagram post.
“I ordered a blood pressure monitor to accurately read my heart rate and blood pressure because I live in a constant fear that I’m dying from a heart attack … also known as cardiophobia,” Ireland wrote.
“The heart palpitations and chest pain brought on by your typical anxiety attack convinces me that I am a 26-year-old with an underlying heart condition that I don’t have,” she added.
“Hold on to your comfort item right. Don’t let people make you feel guilty for having to take a walk or take some space or stay home because you’re not feeling good. Surround yourself with people who understand or at least try to. And if you’re feeling anxious right now … deep breaths. You’re going to be ok,” the post concluded.
