Stefanie Giesinger erzählt offen von Depression und Suizidgedanken

It was definitely working out great I was super sad but still managed to really get everything done from there it just went downhill with Corona with no job and just laying in bed I realized it's ok now suicidal thoughts are really very real to be able to classify. that it's not me at all, but a disease was the trigger that made me feel better now

It's good that you're here. Are you a bit jealous or sad that your dogs are not there? To be honest I think it would be for now there's a lot of action here and maybe too much distraction but I really miss my dogs right now so I'll definitely meet your dogs next week because we're still filming to follow me reports I'm really looking forward to finally learning to the dogs we will also know because i never met her to be honest and you can watch the episode when the time comes so now you are here for the moment what you are beautiful you are only 26 years old but you have already been through a lot and, therefore he is alive, he actually lived the life of two already, at least it was a big turning point or turning point in your life, but then 2014 came along and I have to quote that from now on.

No kidding, due to legal reasons, you won Germany's Next Top Model in 2014. I would like to say that it was a super emotional moment for you. She stood there like a quivering-lipped child next to Heidi and she literally dropped to her knees as she was announced her victory. See it like this on the channel of Germany's next top model on Youtube in the clip

is the next top model of Germany 2014 let's take a look who will be Jolina or please Steffi or will it be Stef The next top model of Germany 2014 is Steffi how such a bad knife is coming how do you look back on that scene so my natural instinct is so oh my gosh how embarrassing and awkward but in the end honestly I just turned 17 it was such an important time in my life now looking back and i am extremely thankful and understand my full scream when i look back now it was really rude also it's very nice to see in its entirety yeah it's a little baby i'm really looking at myself and i'm like this that it's me, you've managed to be there over the years to stay and even grow so much that many people are shocked when they hear You're Definitely Not a Top Model.

I think that's forever. I would say it's me. Let's see what you are doing on Instagram and why people love you. Oh how unpleasant actually. How did you manage to maintain success for so long and not just? being forgotten like so many others i think there is a lot of luck involved because when i won germany next top model in 2014 instagram was really on the rise and you just followed all the people who were on instagram and i was there since 2013 or 12 when instagram it really started like that and that's how I got a huge following inside.

I am a very open person. I'm open to that. In any case, not only personally and when I somehow privately chat with someone, but also instas and at that moment snapchat on snapchat. I was the first German to get such a smiley face. I don't know if we'll remember you if you were checked. so Did you have a smiley face and also had so many views and I don't know why people were interested in me probably because I really posted too much private stuff and it was completely unfiltered somehow everything fails all broken hearts Back then yeah yeah I think people thought they were cool because you get to take a look at what she does in everyday life and you also share for example your illness which is also flagrant because it's so rare it's called Volvos for bad turnover explain to her what It is is a disease that is actually congenital and that is recognized and operated on immediately after birth and then it does so no more problems in the course of life and most children who are not recognized for this until the age of three years die then and for me it was a miracle that I survived so long because I was not diagnosed and only later, when I was 13 years old and I lost ten kilos in a week, there was no food with me for For a long time in the hospital they found out and yes I have always been in the hospital which has always been a bit strange always been different I have always had stomach aches they never believed me people always thought it was anorexia that's why I quit smoking so often and i was so skinny and yes then i had emergency surgery in 2013 and i was told the disease is not curable because it was not recognized during my baby phase and i always have to live with it and 2018 was the last surgery done by a really excellent doctor in berlin and r has really changed a lot i have to say i haven't had anything since then and what happens when i get sick or what happens to the body it always wants to turn around and you can't hold the intestines because it has too move to digest and that's why it always twists so it doesn't get food or blood and then you only have a few hours until you don't die and what is usually done is a tube up the nose to the stomach and when the stomach eases and the weight is off then often you can turn back but sometimes not and that's why I had to have surgery twice what did it do to you mentally?
stefanie giesinger erz hlt offen von depression und suizidgedanken
I think that only made me stronger Tobi Arnis because I dealt with it so extremely as a child I had to deal with what I value in life, I spent a lot of time in the hospital and I am very afraid of death, quite the opposite, it was like a relief to me because i was always in a lot of pain it was like that for me which now it's amazing when it ends so yeah that almost sounds like suicidal thoughts yeah so if i linked it to the disease i didn't have suicidal thoughts now that i thought i wanted to kill myself but it was such a liberating feeling to think well when it's over at least i don't have any more pain because it was really a huge pain and i always put off going to the hospital so blatantly because i was always in the hospital for a long time and In my head it is also something very negative because they never believed that I was in pain and they always sent me to see a psychologist and they always told me that I needed attention or that I had anorexia and that is why I never wanted to go to the hospital, i always endured the pain for a long time until all my friends and yes everyone around me convinced me to go to the hospital, and then the sun would hit my nose again and again. always really upset what does it do to you or someone if no one believes you even though you are in so much pain?
stefanie giesinger erz hlt offen von depression und suizidgedanken
I don't believe myself at some point because you think maybe that's true, maybe I'll tell myself and even if I do now I'm in pain or something when I'm suffering I don't believe myself even if I have a cold I don't believe I know suppose i must catch a cold how was that then was it then you also have

depression

about it or you also talk openly about it at first you didn't think you might be sick or how was that there i didn't even check there was something wrong with me i thought that was normal there ss one is pretty sad and i can't even remember when i first noticed it like this what i can remember is that my boyfriend at the time called me out and said i don't think it's normal for you bothering me somehow every night and standing on set the next day and Steffi happy and then coming home and then really crying, hooray!
You can relate to what

Stefanie

just said, that sadness that you sometimes have, especially when you're in some way in public and Of course, there's also a lot of pressure and stress because everyone is looking at you all the time and especially if you somehow let something shines, everyone worries and your fans raise a mob when they have nothing for two days. from you or something like that, you know, I mean, if you don't post anything there because you actually post a lot, you're like that, you have some kind of responsibility and also to people you don't know but who know you and somehow care more about you but there's also a lot of pressure because you think oh I have to report so moderately now yeah I said yeah I'm super exciting when you say so you don't believe yourself you don't get sick or you don't want to get much worse or I mean yeah , I think I'd rather delay it and just fight my way through, actually I was always on set with a fever of 40, but I don't think it's a bad thing either.
I think my parents were always very tough, they always got ahead. My parents always worked sick. I was raised one way. The last surgery in 2018 was very bad because the stomach is wide open and you lie there for a few weeks and that was the first time I didn't have to work sste because there was definitely a malfunction of the pressive which was super sad but I still managed to do everything and when I couldn't find anything anymore, nothing had to work anymore, I just stood there and was so unabashedly focused on myself and myself. emotions that really From there it all went downhill that was really the trigger and then again in 2020 with Corona with no job and just laying in bed I realized ok now suicidal thoughts are really very very real you actually had extremely and then My manager at the time was a psychologist and she helped me.
I took antidepressants for a year. It definitely helped me understand what talk therapy is and also to be able to sort out that it's not me at all, it's just someone The disease was the reason I'm better now and how it was that we met there family how it was with your family Definitely also genetically if my mum also struggles with

depression

for example yes you don't have these thoughts anymore thankfully you don't anymore so everyone has them it's human to have bad days and everyone who ever had

depression

. having a bad day you think what the hell if I fall into a black hole again and then I can't get out and that's a fear that I think will be with you forever but I definitely feel much better and I also think because I dealt with it and I learned a lot about the disease, I just feel better and there was a day or a time when you noticed that I'm better now or maybe you would think about it, remember yes, about four months ago.
I don't know what triggered it, I had Corona for the fifth time and then I was completely alone at home for a week and d The first three days were terrifying, I felt really bad and then I noticed something had changed and I started writing and painting and somehow way to focus on myself in a positive way and something relaxed there, I don't know if that's a coincidence. but somehow it's like the light came on. I can't even describe it and suddenly I recognized myself again, but my therapist was worried because it happened suddenly and I think she was like that.
You're manic because I had a severe comedown. a few weeks before and then so loud and then he said he thinks about bipolar and that first i should adjust to not making big decisions and somehow maybe yes i shouldn't be in public so much and then again i did it i don't believe i was doing it okay and then n I was with a psychiatrist she pestered me with questions for hours and then she said I don't think you're manic because you don't really have any signs of it but you've come out of a depressive phase that lasted a long time. long and it was a really emotional moment very nice you already have experience with therapydone why is it so important to talk to someone when things get bad?
I think that in general it is always good to talk to people when you feel bad somehow I like a therapist even more because he is an impartial person that you are not I don't know, I'll tell you that with friends it's always like that, you always choose the friend with the one where you can talk about something specific, but with a therapist it's so different and the person is trained and that can sometimes be uncomfortable. With friends it's always like this she's not that uncomfortable or friends family parents it doesn't matter if so sometimes there are things like that when the therapist says something and you say no it's not like that or you think like that it sucks but to me don't say that for too long, but it's really good and of course you sit there and sometimes you fill up this couch and sometimes you're just too happy and m sometimes you still give up with the right weird feeling sometimes you don't get along with this therapist because you're not agree but I also somehow think that in general every person should have a therapist every person should Gregor want that with you you've already done it I've never had any therapy experience, but actually I want to do it all the time, just like she already has said, because I think it's incredibly valuable and to have someone you don't have to hide from, so best case scenario, you have family or friends or someone wherever you can really open up fully, but for to some topics maybe it's not that you don't have to eat yourself, unless you dosometimes with the music, but yeah, what should I?
Yes, I should get to you quickly.

Stefanie

, you just said that she advised you not to have so much publicity and not to make important decisions. When I think about four months ago and follow you, I have a feeling that you still made a big decision or actually you didn't make it before, I really think that I just got out of

depression

and now I have made a lot of decisions like there was something in my chest I wanted to hit, but I never felt strong enough to do it. Then when I came out of the depressive phase, I just had to do it, so in a way that was all that felt right. and I don't know if that was one of the triggers for the other, but I've really changed a lot in my life and even though my therapist told me back then, don't make a decision now, I made the decision then anyway, anyway. somehow, like this, separating myself from some people and it turned out to be the right thing for me so beautiful so good and yes also complete yes brave yes thank you i have never met anyone respect because i have never met anyone to tell me that i got out of my depressive phase .
I only know people who have

depression

and sometimes they go away and then come back. I have never met anyone who has really come out of their

depression

. That's really amazing. Everything is sad. the psychiatrist also said she told me yes you are one of the few people to come out of a phase and somehow I recognize myself and all my friends from back then they are so cheeky old Steffi just came back and she is so beautiful and I'm so fucking grateful for that and it's only now realizing how damned I've been for the past four years.
I've been really shitty but you get used to it at some point, you think it's okay, that's life and only then do you do it. you realize that something really important didn't work out for me somehow you don't want to be the disappointment now, but are you afraid? before i come back or what do you think about it like i said everyone has bad days and if you have ever had

depression

then you are always scared and i have no idea about my periods and then i lie in bed crying. and i say to myself god shit i'm in a hole once in a while i'll never get out again but then it'll be better the next day but of course i'm really scared because it's probably going to be really high but i'm enjoying it of my life for now, it's ok, you're definitely enjoying yours.
Life this summer was hot. I think that's kind of ego now. What I want to do is that I was also at the casting, they invited me, I don't even know when it was in 2018 or something, and to be honest, I felt so shitty and had my I was so hungry. and it wasn't a good time because if you look at the modeling it's actually so zero feminist and it's not good for our society and what goes on behind the scenes in general in the fashion world is not what you should be rooting for. , but because it was always my dream as a kid, it's still a bit, it's like that, that would be really cool and I think it will stay with me and probably if they ask me now, do you want to run? now I would definitely say yes, but if you think about it logically, this isn't really something worth striving for.
We are curious to know what will happen with that. Also here it continues with the next robber and clearly Talk and here is a series of follow-up reports I met
