“So this was June 30th of last year. I was in throes of intense anxiety. There were moments, very few, where I felt normal. I was gonna post this then but got nervous that it was too self indulgent and it very well may be but f**k it.. I just came upon it and thought I’d share,” Oliver captioned the clip.

In the video, the actor described how “scary” his anxiety can be.

“I’m compelled in this moment. I went off my Lexapro about three months ago,” he explained. “I was on it for about five and half years for anxiety and it’s been really gnarly for me.”

He went on to say coming off the medication could be “crushing” and “debilitating”, but was thankful to be “feeling good” in that moment.

“I feel f**king great and it may be fleeting,” he said. “In an hour, I might be back to where I was but I’m going to bath in normalcy for a moment.”

Oliver got some support from his family and friends in the comments.

“I love you Oliver,” his sister Kate Hudson wrote, with Gwyneth Paltrow saying the same.

“My anxiety was absolutely debilitating. Cheers to being anxiety free & hoping it doesn’t return,” Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Kyle Richards added.
