Andres added in another post that she has been struggling and don't know how to prevent it, but that she has also started going to a therapist and counselling.

"I'm doing this right now because maybe at least it can help my mind to recover from worrying from thinking. Maybe you're crying or sobbing so hard right now and you can barely breathe. You know what? Breathe! You're going to be okay. Breathe, and you know you can survive. It's painful but you can sit with
it and eventually they will pass. Maybe not immediately, but sometime soon. You are not your anxiety."
She added, "Listen, there will be good days, and there will be bad days that will almost make you feel you want to give up. But hold just hold on, please always try to hold on. You are not crazy, you are fine, I believe you can make it."
