Hailey Bieber struggled with mild PTSD.

Model Hailey Bieber addressed how her health crisis impacted both her physical and mental well-being on the most latest episode of The Run Through with Vogue.

Hailey Bieber was admitted to the hospital in March 2022 after experiencing stroke-like symptoms, which have been eventually revealed to be prompted by a blood clot in her brain. During the podcast interview, Hailey said that having the PFO closed was the scariest part she had ever done in her life. After a month of being hospitalized, Hailey Bieber revealed that she had to undergo surgery to mend a hole in her heart after she suffered the mini-stroke. In her video titled, 'telling my story', she revealed that she had a blood clot that traveled to her brain and had caused a transient ischemic attack.

She went on to say that she was in Palm Springs at the time of her health crisis and that she is still triggered by it anytime she visits the location. Hailey explained that going back to the site was an unusual triggering kinda feeling for her simply because she did remember exactly how it all happened at the time, but she thinks that there is a positive side to her that led her to explore that there was a hole in her heart and that since she suffered with the health crisis, she has discovered a lot about herself in the months since.

Hailey Bieber admitted to having a significant amount of anxiety and a little bit of PTSD [Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder] since she was afraid it would happen again. Hailey explained that it was simply a feeling that she was experiencing, and that she never wanted to go through it again. The model mentioned in the interview that she meant that the moment was frightening, unsettling, and disturbing to watch in every way you might imagine. While the Rhode Skin founder is open to talking about the experience if it will help someone else, she admits that it was really difficult to talk about in the months that followed the incident.

She said that even the YouTube video she made for her YouTube channel was challenging for her when she described to the fans what had happened to her. Hailey said that talking about the incident brings back memories of how she started to feel while going through that experience. But she now feels that it becomes more and more simple to talk about it over time and she is just thankful for the opportunity to have amazing doctors, nurses, and other individuals who assisted her in figuring out what happened. Even though she is just now beginning to come out of that kind of flight or fight the feeling of being nervous about whatever is bad happening again, she has gradually begun to enjoy life again, free of anxiousness or opinions about what might occur with her health shortly.
