Actor Leonardo DiCaprio is opening up for the first time in regards to his health struggle.
The leading Hollywood star is breaking his silence on a battle that not a lot of people know about because he rarely speaks about it. But it seems like things are changing and the star has finally gone public with the news.
Leonardo DiCaprio started off his career during his childhood era and started to come in commercials during the latter part of the 80s. He achieved success during a very early phase of his life but not a lot of attention was ever given to the star’s mental health battle because not a lot of people know.
It was only after one of his recent appearances for a film that made him realized that he needed to slow down and pause as it was really starting to get to him.
While not a lot of people would consider this to be a big deal, those suffering from OCD or obsessive-compulsive disorder know the pain that they have to deal with.
Sometimes having thoughts of various kinds can really impact the mind and in this situation, the star says he’s constantly dealing with the urge to repeat a task, whether he might like it or not.
While some medications do end up working so well for the star, other drugs fail to do so. And in the process, it’s only him that has to go through it alone as the system just collapses on plenty of occasions.
The star was diagnosed years ago and he tries not to let it overshadow him. But to say he’s fine with it always is just not the case.
This was especially true while he was filming a particular scene for the film Aviator. During this time, he had a mental health relapse and just shut down. He had to take some time out and people were just appalled at how much he went through silently on set.
