The dark days of Gisele

Gisele Bündchen explained how she felt breathless and had extremely negative thoughts. She wrote, “I couldn’t catch my own breath. Making some excuse, I got up, pulled my towel around myself, and went outside onto the deck. It was a beautiful night. There was the water and the lights in the distance, and as much air as I needed, but I still couldn’t find my breath. It felt like everything in my life was going to kill me.”
