“I’m literally on the floor of the bathroom in the suite. I thought I was going to go home, I thought I was going to have to call 911, I felt like I couldn’t breathe,” she shared.

In addition to opening up about her experience at the U.S. Open, Alix also told her followers how she copes with her anxiety.

“No. 1, and I know this is super hard, but I like to tell someone that I don’t feel good, that I’m having anxiety,” she said. “It helps to have someone there, you know, that if something does happen to you they’ll be be able to get help or do something,”

Alix went on to share that she likes to practice breathing exercises to calm herself down and then distract herself by talking about things such as the food she ate that day

“That helps calm your nervous system and get into a better headspace,” she said. “You will just go through this rabbit hole in your head freaking out so you need to, as hard as it is, just find something else.”

Alix emphasized that she tell fans about her anxiety in hopes of helping others cope with theirs.

“I just wanted to make this video because I was able to get myself out of that headspace, and we stayed and we had a great time. Years before when something like this would happen to me, I would usually end up just leaving,” she explained.
