Ireland Baldwin monitors blood pressure at home amid severe anxiety attacks. On Thursday, the model took to Instagram to post a photo of her holding a blood pressure monitor and explained in the accompanying caption that she finds using the device to be helpful whenever she is battling the disorder. QUOTE: I ordered a blood pressure monitor to accurately read my heart rate and blood pressure because I live in a constant fear that I'm dying from a heart attack... also known as cardiophobia. QUOTE: The heart palpitations and chest pain brought on by your typical anxiety attack convinces me that I am a 26-year-old with an underlying heart condition that I don't have. Ireland went on to share that she doesn't take medication as she doesn't "believe in it" but understands why others do. And that she has met with all sorts of anxiety specialists and is doing "breath work", however. QUOTE: I know it may seem silly to you, but this little machine has brought me the utmost comfort”. She added that she wants anyone who suffers from their own anxieties to know that she is there, and they are not alone. QUOTE: It can be so embarrassing and isolating at times.
