Candace Cameron Bure Opens Up About “PTSD”
Candace Cameron Bure co-hosted “The View” from 2015-2016. It’s safe to assume that she will never do that again.
She says that the show took a heavy toll on her mentally and physically. She says, “When I felt like I was going into a show that I didn’t have a clear opinion about or it was something that I was legitimately nervous to talk about, I would just get sick to my stomach.”
Bure opened up about the only type of emotional stress she’s ever felt that hard, “The stress and the anxiety — I actually have a pit in my stomach right now. There was only one type of stress that I’ve ever felt in my life, that came from that show. And I have PTSD, like, I can feel it. It was so difficult, and to manage that emotional stress was very, very hard.”
However, Bure doesn’t look back at the show with any hard feelings or disgust. On the contrary, she’s very fond of her fellow co-hosts and admits that the show is the toughest job she has ever had. That includes being a highly recognized child star.
But, she continues, “I feel like there were so many wonderful takeaways from the show. And as difficult as that job was, I’m very, very grateful it.”
