Liza Soberano is ready to delve into mental health matters with the launch of her first-ever podcast “An Open Mind With Liza Soberano.”
The first guest to grace Liza’s podcast is Yassi Pressman, who opened up about the difficulties she went through after her father’s passing and how she dealt with anxiety and panic attacks, among other things.
In the podcast's pilot episode released on January 16, Yassi described the death of her father as “one of the hardest times” of her life.
“I just had more anxiety attacks and I didn’t know how to feel. I didn’t know how to process what I was feeling. I didn’t know who to talk to,” she candidly told Liza.
Yassi recounted the moment when her mental and emotional struggles would manifest into her muscles getting stiff which made her feel like she was going to have a stroke.
“It would get really bad sometimes to the point where it’s normal for your muscles to be so tense that you can’t move them. I felt like I was gonna have a stroke. It started in my fingers, then it was my arms, because I was so tired from shouting and letting everything out and crying. My lungs were tired and my legs didn’t move,” she detailed.
After reading more about how to handle anxiety and panic attacks, Yassi said that she could now deal with it better in the event it happens.
“I was really scared. Now that I know that that happens, I can handle my breathing better and I can not panic anymore. And just be like, okay it’s normal and it will pass," she explained.
