Actress and activist Anna Lynn McCord spoke candidly about her struggle with a severe mental illness – dissociative identity disorder.
During an interview with foreign media, the star of the series New Kids from Beverly Hills recalled filming a scene from the second season of the series, in which the teacher she played was raped. She admitted that filming that scene was painful and exhausting for her.
- My whole body panicked like it was real life. Those moments came to light through my work. At that time, I didn’t understand anything about my mind and brain. I was just trying to do my job, and I couldn’t – said the actress.
The actress revealed that she was the victim of a sexual assault in 2012, but that she was abused during her childhood. When she finally visited a psychiatrist to face her fears, she found out about her diagnosis.
- There’s no reason to be ashamed of anything. A year ago, I went for treatment for PTSD. The brain does not care about the quality of life. He just worries about continuing to live. I want my quality of life to improve and that is why I stepped into this healing process – she explained.
