Delilah Belle Hamlin is speaking out about her recent health issues, which she claims resulted in an accidental overdose.On Tuesday, Lisa Rinna’s eldest daughter, Harry Hamlin, posted a lengthy Instagram video in which she revealed that she has been battling several illnesses, including Lyme disease, Epstein-Barr virus, encephalitis, and Pediatric Autoimmune Neuropsychiatric Disorders Associated with Streptococcal Infections (PANDAS).She began having severe panic attacks earlier this year as a result of PANDAS, and after seeing a psychiatrist, she was prescribed several medications, according to the 23-year-old.
“He overprescribed me with one medication that one of my friends takes about 10 milligrammes, and he gave me about 20 milligrammes three times a day, and then he gave me 3 milligrammes of Xanax a day,” she explained. “So, for one thing, my body became dependent on Xanax, and for another, I overdosed. I had no intention of doing so. I overdosed on propranolol, a blood pressure medication.
I took Benadryl with it and ended up in the hospital for some reason.”Delilah described her feelings after her overdose as “hopeless” and “helpless.””I wasn’t a drug addict, but my body was addicted to it because of how much the doctor had prescribed me,” she explained.”I actually returned yesterday. I’m really disappointed because I thought this place was going to cure me…and instead it’s just going to be a place for me to relax “Delilah spoke up. “However, because I posed a medical risk, I was politely asked to leave after three weeks.
That was extremely difficult for me, because if I’m too sick for this place, I’m too sick for anywhere. How can I improve?”The model ended her video by asking her followers for their support and any recommendations for specialists who can assist her with her health issues.””My family and I are at a loss as to what to do,” she explained, adding, “It’s an invisible illness.” I can look perfectly fine while feeling completely awful.” If you or someone you know requires mental health assistance, text “STRENGTH” to 741-741 to be connected to a certified crisis counsellor.
