KARACHI: Actress Mawra Hocane has opened up about being diagnosed with anxiety and learning how to cope with it on a daily basis.
She took to Instagram to post a clip of her from her drama Daasi, along with a long caption. “We all have our days of weakness & breakdowns, I am lucky my job allows me to express my grief on screen. It’s been over a year since I’ve been diagnosed with anxiety & I’m no longer embarrassed of it,” she said.
Mawra went on to add that anxiety is “a part of me like the sky is blue but I’m definitely better equipped to deal with it as I’m growing with it & beginning to understand it. I don’t run away from my friends & family when I’m having a panic attack I share with them & I feel I’m stronger than my condition. I’m putting this out because I want all of you who fight anxiety everyday to be okay with it & not be ashamed of it.”
She went on to encourage others who are suffering from similar conditions to reach out for help.
