Anxiety makes life difficult for the “Bachelor” winner

Clea-Lacy Juhn has been through tough times.


She always shows her most beautiful radiance in public. But the former “Bachelor” winner Clea-Lacy Juhn hasn’t felt like smiling for a while. The influencer has been suffering from anxiety since a stay in New York, triggered by a panic attack. Now she has decided to make her health crisis public.

“Dear ones, it’s been a little quieter around me for some time,” begins Clea-Lacy Juhn, 31, her post, in which she wants to give her fans pure wine. The former “Bachelor” winner spent the pre-Christmas period in New York. Since then nothing is like it used to be. “Three days before my return to Germany, I had a panic attack on the spot and my dream turned into a nightmare. At first I didn’t know what was wrong with me and couldn’t explain my condition,” she describes the moments of uncertainty and panic. “I could hardly breathe, couldn’t eat or sleep, my heart was racing and my whole body was shaking. I was totally overwhelmed with the situation and the reaction of my body. I couldn’t understand why all this was happening.”

Clea-Lacy Juhn decided to seek therapy

They stayed in constant contact with their family for two days and together they tried to organize an earlier return flight – fortunately with success. “72 hours later I was there – finally back in Germany.” But her condition hadn’t improved yet. Clea-Lacy decided to seek professional help. “I can’t put into words how I felt at that point, because I’ve never felt anything like it in my life. An emotional cocktail including chaos of thoughts was suddenly everyday life. I then decided to start therapy [sic].” She put herself in the hands of experts for over four weeks. Little by little she found her way back to everyday life, she writes.

Post-traumatic stress from being kicked by a stranger

During the therapy, the 31-year-old apparently also carried out intensive research into the causes. “In the aftermath, we could only explain it to ourselves that this attack was a result of my kicking in the subway.” In an interview with, she remembers: “Two days before I had the panic attack, I was kicked by a homeless person on the subway. He just walked past me and kicked and he probably has to too to have been the trigger.” Your therapists are currently apparently assuming that this incident triggered a post-traumatic reaction.

In her Instagram post, Clea-Lacy describes the consequences: “The smallest things, like driving a car, getting in the elevator, going out the door were and are still a challenge for me. I developed fears that I never had before and knew.” But she is confident: “Now I’m on the mend and I’m in the process of facing the challenges every day and working to become a new and stronger Clea who faces her fears.”
