Gigi Hadid, the renowned American supermodel, finds herself in the spotlight once again as the reports of her alleged possession of marijuana and consequent arrests during her vacation in the Cayman Islands come to the fore. These reports have caught the attention of both media and fans alike. This is not the first time that she has become a hot topic of discussion. Gigi Hadid has previously made headlines for being vocal about her health conditions. 

Gigi’s struggle with Hashimoto’s disease

In an interview with Elle Magazine in 2016, Gigi Hadid openly shared her battle with Hashimoto’s disease. She revealed, “I have Hashimoto’s disease, which is a thyroid disease. I’ve been taking medication for it for the past two years.” Since then, she has been vocal about Hashimoto’s disease and her struggles with it. Gigi Hadid has constantly been a victim of trolling on social media, especially over body image issues. In 2018, Gigi was attacked and body shamed on Twitter. As a response, she herself put out a tweet clarifying the changes in her body and shutting the trolls down.

Talking about anxiety and mental health conditions

Gigi Hadid has spoken out about her mental health in various instances. She has been a vocal advocate for mental health, openly discussing her personal battle with anxiety on multiple occasions. Gigi explained, “I always get made fun of on social media because my voice shakes. But if you ever hear my voice shaking, it’s because of my anxiety. It’s something that I have to breathe through.” This isn’t the first time Gigi has shed light on her mental health struggles. Back in 2016, she revealed her ongoing battle with anxiety, and in a recent interview with Vogue, she disclosed her frequent encounters with ’imposter syndrome’. 

History of Lyme disease in the family

During her cover interview with Elle for the March 2019 edition, Gigi Hadid opened up about her family’s battle with Lyme disease, revealing the unique position she found herself in. Her mother, Yolanda, sister Bella, and brother Anwar all shared the experience of living with chronic Lyme disease. Gigi admitted to feeling a mixture of independence and guilt for not personally understanding their struggles. She expressed the pain she felt witnessing her family members in despair. Gigi said, “Growing up, having three of my family members sick made me very independent. I also felt a lot of guilt for being the one person in the family who didn’t understand what they were going through. It’s hard when your whole family is in pain, and you don’t know what to do.”

Gigi Hadid, being vocal on so many instances about her health conditions shows her mental strength. This encourages a lot of people to openly discuss their own struggles with various physical and mental health conditions and work towards their well-being and good health.
