Kendall Jenner’s struggle with anxiety has been hinted at slightly throughout season 12 of E!’s hit reality TV series Keeping Up With The Kardashians. But now the model is finally addressing it herself in a new sneak peek for next week’s episode and she opened up about her health battle to her older sister Kim Kardashian West.
In the clip for the upcoming episode of KUWTK, Kendall sat with her sister Kim and a few close family friends and she complained that felt tired. Kim asked her sister what was wrong and Kendall revealed that she has been struggling with sleep paralysis, which is a sleep disorder that causes sufferers to become temporarily paralyzed and it happens either while they fall asleep or when they wake up, according to People.
Kendall explained that her sleep paralysis happens while she’s asleep. She said it’s as if her mind wakes up while her body is still asleep in the middle of the night.
“So you wake up, but nothing can move,” Kendall said. “It’s the scariest thing in the entire world, you literally think you’re never going to be able to move again. You can’t do anything, you’re freaking out like ‘cause all you wanna do is be able to move so you’re laying there and you’re trying to move…”
“And you can’t communicate it?” Kim asked.
“Nothing,” Kendall said.
“I mean, I thought I was having anxiety,” Kim told the cameras. “This is like so much scarier. I’ve never heard of sleep paralysis and I think it sounds like such a crazy experience and I feel so bad that she’s been going through this.”
Watch the full sneak peek and be sure to catch the next episode of KUWTK, airing Sundays at 9 p.m. on E!
