"Once I was able to acknowledge what it [anxiety and depression] was, I was able to address it. I was able to get help through therapy and medication," she added. "You have to treat yourself well - it's an ongoing battle for me. But now, I have great care, I know the signs, I can prevent things from happening before they get out of control."
