Kathy Griffin is upfront with her followers about her daily struggles with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and anxiety attacks.

The 62-year-old comedian asked other TikTok viewers to share their coping mechanisms in a video last week in which she disclosed for the first time publicly that she had been diagnosed with “an extreme case” of complicated PTSD.

Also on Friday, Kathy Griffin released another video in which she discussed having an eight-hour anxiety episode.

Kathy Griffin on PTSD: How do TikTok Users Handle Similar Situation

Kathy Griffin said in a TikTok video that she had never discussed PTSD in public. She continued by stating that she had a severe case of complex PTSD. She asked for advice from other TikTok users on handling similar situations.

“If any of you know my story, you’ll understand that this really started for me about five and a half years ago, wink, you know, the cancer didn’t help,” she said per Today’s report.

Indirectly, she made fun of her difficulties in her personal and professional life when she appeared in a photo in 2017 holding a bloody copy of former President Donald Trump’s skull. 

The comic missed several excellent job prospects after the contentious picture session and received a lot of negative press.

Also on Friday, Kathy released another video discussing having an eight-hour anxiety episode, PinkVilla reported.

Griffin’s Health Issues

Kathy Griffin recently disclosed in an Instagram post that she had an MRI on Easter Sunday by posting a picture of herself in a hospital corridor, wrapped in a blanket and sporting a face mask.

People Magazine added that the “My Life on the D-List” comedian went into more detail about her health difficulties at the time and disclosed that she had attempted suicide the year.

Kathy Griffin previously had surgery to remove a portion of her left lung in August 2021 and announced on Jimmy Kimmel Live in December of that year, “I’m cancer free!”

She lost her job as co-host of CNN’s New Year’s Eve special as a result of the event. She also had several of her stand-up performances and TV appearances canceled, was under investigation by the Secret Service, and was placed on a “No-Fly” list.

It came to the point where she wouldn’t leave her house for months and began “taking any prescription pill I could get my hands on,” she said in a Newsweek op-ed describing the effects of the picture as “an erasure.”
