American model, socialite, and media personality Kendall Jenner has recently opened up on her anxiety, stating that sometimes it gets so bad she has to be "rushed to the hospital".Kendal has suffered from anxiety and hypochondria, a condition in which a person is excessively worried about the potential of having a severe illness.

"I think being overworked and being in the situation that I'm in now is kind of what set it out of control in a way. I've had times where I feel like I need to be rushed to the hospital because I think my heart's failing and I can't breathe and I need someone to help me. Sometimes I think I'm dying."

The 'Keeping Up with the Kardashians' star also commented on those who don't believe she has mental health issues because of her privileged upbringing.

"There is going to be those people that say, 'Oh, okay, what does she have to worry about? What does she have to be anxious about?' and I'll never sit here and say that I'm not fortunate. I know I live a very privileged, amazing lifestyle. I'm a very blessed girl.

"I still have [a brain] and that thing up there sometimes doesn't always – I don't know – it's not always happy, and it's not always connecting.

"I'm still a human being at the end of the day. No matter what someone has or doesn't have, it doesn't mean that they don't have real-life feelings and emotions."
