In the spirit of keeping it real, the Dancing with the stars The 36-year-old champion admitted “I’m struggling today,” adding, “and it’s NO wonder I’m on my period.”

“I have a hormonal depression like an MF,” continued Bristowe, who got engaged to Jason Tartick this spring. “It puts my relationship through tough times, it puts me in shameful spirals, and I sat on a 5 hour flight talking about myself to get out of a panic attack. I can live an adventurous life and I am very proud of myself. for working so hard, but today it’s taking its toll on me. “

Sharing a photo of herself wearing purple sweats and clutching a large coffee drink, the TV personality added that the mood swings she would experience during her period once made her feel like she was “crazy as a bat.”

“I never put two and two together because it was always around the same time,” he said. “Hormones are the devil and they are stronger than me. I just want to get into my own bed and cry today. But I don’t have time. This coffee that is the size of me can’t do much.”

The heartfelt post prompted many inside and outside the Bachelor Nation to offer words of support and commiseration. Many women left comments about their own menstrual cycles that affect their mental health.

“This is real,” wrote comedian Nikki Glaser, who has also spoken openly about her mental health. “It is so easy to identify. Know that whatever you feel will not last forever. It always helps me remember that I am sick and it will pass like a cold.”
