Chrissy Teigen Opens Up About Her Postpartum Depression Struggle

More and more celebrities are opening up about their battles with postpartum depression. This includes Hayden Panettierre and now Chrissy Teigen, who says she has struggles with depression and anxiety since giving birth to her first child last year.

In an essay for Glamour, she talked all about what she has been secretly dealing with since giving birth to Luna.

“Getting out of bed to get to set on time was painful. My lower back throbbed; my shoulders — even my wrists — hurt. I didn’t have an appetite. I would go two days without a bite of food, and you know how big of a deal food is for me.”

Teigen, who is a supermodel, Lip Sync Battle host, and known for being a delight on Twitter, has kept her struggle largely under wraps until now.

“I looked at my doctor, and my eyes welled up because I was so tired of being in pain. Of sleeping on the couch. Of waking up throughout the night. Of throwing up. Of taking things out on the wrong people. Of not enjoying life. Of not seeing my friends. Of not having the energy to take my baby for a stroll.”

Teigen has begun taking antidepressants and seeing a therapist and says she is on the road to recovery, and hopes that talking about her experience inspires other new moms going through the same thing to get the help they need.
