Kathy Griffin has been diagnosed with PTSD.
The 62-year-old star took to social media to reveal in a world first that she has post-traumatic stress disorder, as she reached out to fans asking for their own stories about anxiety and depression as she noted that she had been afflicted with an “extreme case” of mental disorder.
Speaking in a video posted to TikTok, she said: “You may laugh or whatever, but I’ve been diagnosed with complex PTSD, and that’s what’s called an extreme case. I don’t never talked about this before but i think this is the place before but i was diagnosed with complex PTSD and this caught an extreme case i would like to hear from you about depression and anxiety , because it really started for you about five and a half years ago.
The ‘Suddenly Susan’ star – who was recently declared cancer-free after having half of her lung removed – recently revealed she has a prescription addiction
drugs and attempted suicide in 2020.
Speaking on The New York Times’ ‘Sway’ podcast, she said: “I think –
Well, look, I think I’m probably an addictive person, you know.
“But you have to admit it’s almost comical. I went to the hospital for pill addiction at 59. Who the hell becomes a junkie in their late fifties? Me. “I didn’t know what to do with myself. “I was just
such a crazy workaholic, and all of a sudden I had this time on my hands, and then I was depressed, and things just weren’t getting better. “And then you fall into the ‘Life will be better for my husband without me’ and then you call the estate attorney and everything.
