Bridgerton star Ruby Barker shared her mental health problems in an honest video and revealed that she was hospitalized.
The actress, who plays Marina Thompson in the period drama Netflix, explained in an Instagram post that she “fights from Bridgerton“.
“I’m better. I’m not feeling well for a long time and I want to be honest with everyone, I fought,” she said in the clip. “So I’m in the hospital at the moment, I’ll be released soon and I hope I can continue my life.”
“I’ll take a little break for myself and I want to encourage others, if you’re worried, do yourself a favor. Take a break, stop being so strict with yourself.”
“And people always told me not to be so hard on myself, and I never really, really knew what that meant.”
Barker explained that “all this intergenerational trauma has accumulated in me and I have carried the weight of the world on my back.”
“And now I’m at the point where I’m diagnosed and I’ll talk to you about it another time,” she continued.
