Celebrities You Didn’t Know Are Battling Medical Conditions
When she was in college, actress and author Gabourey Sidibe struggled hard with depression. And along with that depression came panic attacks and disordered eating. Sidibe would go for days without eating, and when she did let food pass her lips, she’d throw it back up again soon. Ultimately diagnosed with bulimia alongside her depression, Sidibe went on antidepressants and began regular therapy. Gabby is best known for her role in the drama Empire, and even today the actress struggles at times with eating and keeping herself in the right place mentally. She’s a staunch advocate for regular therapy, and credits the practice with doing her a world of good.
