Carson Daly Says His Anxiety Has...

KEVIN LOVE recently started an important conversation about men's mental health in the NBA . . . and now CARSON DALY is sharing his own experiences with anxiety.

 

On Friday's "Today" show, he said, quote, "Looking back on my life, I was a 'worry-wart' kid.  I was always worrying.  My father died when I was five.  I had an ulcer when I was in high school.  I've been nervous my whole life."

 

His first panic attack happened when he was a host at MTV, and he had no idea what it was at the time.  He was just "terrified for no apparent reason."  But this IS a very serious thing.  

 

The attacks have been so bad that he's been hospitalized . . . like Kevin Love.  He said, quote, "You feel like you're dying . . . I'm like, my heart is going to stop, or I'm going to have a heart attack, and of course, you're perfectly fine."

 

He said the anxiety is part of the way he was hard-wired, but there are also great things about his sensitivities. 

 

Carson is seeing a cognitive therapist for his anxiety, and he says that's really helped him.  (Here's video.)
