It just goes to show you that one creates their own hell.
Comedian Kathy Griffin recently opened up about her ongoing battle with complex post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), which she says she has been struggling with since shortly after the controversy surrounding her photograph of holding a bloodied Trump severed head in 2017.
In an emotional Instagram video, Griffin spoke candidly about her experience with the disorder, revealing that she has been dealing with an “extreme” case of it. She also used a blurred filter in the video to visually represent how she feels internally.
“I put this effect on because it kind of shows how I’m feeling,” Griffin said in the post. “I don’t think I’ve ever talked about it publicly because I didn’t want to seem like I was playing the victim or I was trying to get sympathy or something like that. But, I’ve been dealing with a really extreme case of PTSD for a couple of years now.”
According to Griffin, her condition has had a significant impact on her life. She has experienced intense panic attacks that have lasted up to eight hours and have had a severe physical impact on her body.
Griffin has no one to blame but her own actions. She put herself in this state after her political stunts that backfired on her.
While Griffin admitted that she was hesitant to share her struggles on social media, she ultimately decided to do so in the hopes of helping others who may be dealing with similar issues.
“I don’t know if this is the right place to talk about it or not, but it’s so real for me,” she said. “I’m hoping that by sharing this, maybe others can have a better understanding of what it is and that it’s a real thing.”
Griffin’s disclosure has been met with mixed reactions, with some expressing sympathy for her situation while others have criticized her for bringing up the controversial Trump photograph once again.
It’s unfortunate that Kathy Griffin is struggling but she only has herself to blame. She did this to herself and is further evidence that the far left is full of people with mental health disorders.
