On the outside, it looks like supermodel Gisele Bundchen has it all... incredibly beautiful with a great career in modeling... married to a superstar football player... beautiful kids.
And til now, she's been super private about what her life is like.
But with a new book coming out, Gisele opened up to People magazine about her struggles with panic attacks and even suicidal thoughts.
And even people who look perfect to us worry about their looks under the microscope of being a model. She was told her nose was too big, her eyes were too small... and she'd never be a cover model.
She also talks about changes she made in her lifestyle and her diet, to help her deal with her anxiety.
It can't be easy for her to talk about these things. But talking about them is important, because it helps others know they're not alone in THEIR thoughts and problems.
These are issues that millions of people deal with every day... and there IS help.
If you are struggling with anxiety, depression, thoughts of suicide... reach out. Call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-8255.
Or seek help locally... there are several places you can get help.... like Lifelines Counseling in Mobile.

I am excited to share that my book will be released October 2nd! Writing this book was a transformative and intense process for me. Uncovering stories deep inside of me made me feel vulnerable and emotional, but through facing my shadows and insecurities I learned how to accept and love myself in a deeper way. My intention in writing this book is to share how I overcame certain challenges in my life in hopes that it could help others who may be going thru similar experiences. Proceeds from the book will go to project Água Limpa, to help protect water sources for future generations. http://bit.ly/PreOrderLessons 📖 Feliz em compartilhar que meu livro sairá no dia 2 de outubro! Escrever esse livro foi uma experiência transformadora e intensa para mim. Lembrar de várias histórias que estavam adormecidas dentro de mim me fez sentir vulnerável e emotiva, mas, ao olhar para minhas sombras e inseguranças, aprendi a me aceitar e me amar de uma maneira mais profunda. Minha intenção, ao escrever este livro, é compartilhar como eu superei certos desafios em minha vida, com a esperança de que possa ajudar de alguma forma outras pessoas que estivessem passando por experiências semelhantes. Meus rendimentos deste livro irão ao projeto Água Limpa, que ajuda a proteger as fontes de água para futura gerações.
