Hannah Ferrier Opens Up About Her Panic Attack: "Anxiety Is Not an Easy Thing to Deal With"
The Below Deck Mediterranean chief stew thanked fans for their love and support after she shared her struggles.
Hannah Ferrier is one of the fiercest females around. However, the Below Deck Mediterranean chief stew showed her more vulnerable side when she experienced a debilitating anxiety attack during Tuesday night's episode.
Hannah expressed her appreciation for all the kind words she received after sharing this difficult moment with fans. "Thanks for the love and support Twitter world. Anxiety is not an easy thing to deal with made harder with cameras in your face. But that’s the job," she tweeted Tuesday night. "I really appreciate the support."
The chief stew also opened up a bit more about what caused her anxiety attack in the first place. She explained that it was not only her feelings for Conrad Empson becoming more serious but also the stress of working with the crew and catering to the charter guests, as well as the lack of sleep while trying to juggle it all.
Kasey Cohen underscored the importance of taking care of yourself when dealing with anxiety, as Hannah did during Tuesday night's episode. "Anxiety is a real thing," Kasey tweeted. "It’s important to be patient with yourself, kind to yourself and look after yourself. Nothing is more important than your health."
Captain Sandy Yawn was also heartbroken to see Hannah and Jamie Jason, who came down with bronchial tracheitis during the episode, struggling with their health this charter season. "It’s always hard to see your crew struggle," she tweeted. "My heart went out to @hannahferrier_ and @JamieLynnJason."
Conrad previously described to The Daily Dish what it was like to see Hannah go through such an intense experience. "I did feel sorry for Hannah. I don't really know what was going on because she hid a lot of it," he said. "I guess she's just never been in a relationship before and didn't want to open up, was scared about it. And plus, the stress of the season with the amount of hours we do and everything like that doesn't help."
