Patti Murin, also known as Princess Anna in Broadway's 'Frozen' got real with her followers when an anxiety attack forced her to cancel a show.
“It had been building up for a while, and while the past month has been incredible, all of the ups and downs and stress and excitement really takes a toll on my mental health,” she on her Instagram caption. “I’ve learned that these situations aren’t something to ‘deal with’ or ‘push through.’ Anxiety and depression are real diseases that affect so many of us.”
Murin has received an overwhelming amount of support from colleagues and fans for being so honest about her struggles with anxiety.
Murin told Huffington Post that she had struggled with anxiety in the past and even had a severe panic attack in March for an out-of-town 'Frozen' show in Denver. Her co-star Caissie Levy was there to help her out, just like the real sisters in the movie.
