Sharing a candid post on Instagram, Gabrielle Union, detailed her experience and mental health battle living with PTSD.

In the video post, Gabrielle is shown being photographed at The Met Gala and being joined on the red carpet by her husband, Dwyane Wade, with accompanying arrows indicating her struggles.

"There's times the anxiety is so bad it shrinks my life. Leaving the house or making a left hand turn at an uncontrolled light can fill me with terror. Anxiety can turn my anticipation about a party or fun event I've been excited about attending (Met Ball) into pure agony..."

It was her concluding statement of solidarity that makes us love her even more:

"I share this as I hope everyone living with anxiety knows they aren't alone or 'being extra.' I see you, I FEEL you and there is so much love for you. Always. Love and light good people. Be good to each other out there." she wrote.

Her comment section was full of supporters praising her for bravely speaking openly about her mental health.

"[Your] vulnerability amazes and inspires us," stated one commenter.

"This is powerful, thank you for sharing," wrote another.
