Hayden Panettiere on postpartum depression

There is no doubt that Hayden Panettiere is one of the most popular actresses on the acting scene at the present time. There was a lot of attention paid to Panettiere after it was revealed that she was in a relationship with the famous boxer Vladimir Klitschko.

In 2014, the couple welcomed a daughter into their lives, but few people know that Hayden suffered from postpartum depression during that time. "So many people told me how to live. I wanted to make certain decisions on my own and no one could stop me.

What I was putting into my body was something like defiance. Some people do exercise. I would like that to be a mechanism for me too coping. Alcohol can make you feel better in the moment, but then the next day you feel much worse, and so on," Hayden said.

Alcohol

Alcohol was her vice at that time, and she felt like she was sinking deeper and deeper into the abyss of addiction. As a result of the chaotic circumstances at that time, she realized that it was time to seek rehabilitation for her mental health.

It was a wise decision made by Panettiere. "I was supposed to take anti-depressants for postpartum depression, but they don't go well with alcohol, and I wasn't ready to stop drinking. I drowned. I was 30, my face was swollen, I was jaundiced, my eyes were yellow, I had to go to a liver specialist, I gained weight, I was losing my hair.

A big part of my therapy was living in forgiveness. The step in the 12 step program is forgiveness. If someone wants to be a good person and be the best version of themselves, they can choose to, she told and revealed that she then decided to sign up for rehabilitation." It was recently reported that her brother Jansen Panettiere had passed away, which was another tragic situation for her.
