Delilah Hamlin is officially six months sober!
The 23-year-old model celebrated the milestone in a video shared to her Instagram Story on Thursday, exclaiming, “Hi, I’m six months sober!” as she happily jumped in place, according to E! News.
During an Instagram Live in November, the eldest daughter of Lisa Rinna and Harry Hamlin revealed that she had accidentally overdosed on a prescription medication called propranolol after mixing it with Benadryl. She also said she had become “dependent on Xanax” after a psychiatrist allegedly “overprescribed” her.
“He overprescribed me with one medication that one of my friends takes like 10 milligrams, and he gave me like 20 milligrams three times a day and then he gave me 3 milligrams of Xanax a day,” she said. “So my body got dependent on Xanax number one, and number two, I overdosed. I didn’t mean to at all. I overdosed on this one medication called propranolol. I took Benadryl with it and for some reason, I ended up in the hospital.”
What does Dalilah say about her alcohol addiction?
Hamlin said during the Live in November that at that point, she had not had a sip of alcohol in over two months after battling several illnesses such as Lyme disease, Epstein-Barr virus, encephalitis, and Pediatric Autoimmune Neuropsychiatric Disorders Associated with Streptococcal Infections (PANDAS), which added to her confusion as to why she was reacting more than expected to her prescribed medications.
“I can’t drink because of the inflammation in my brain, so I was wondering why I was getting so blacked out,” she said in the clip.
Hamlin said her health issues first arose in March 2021 when she began experiencing panic attacks and bouts of obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD). The model compared them to the symptoms she experienced at age 11 when she was diagnosed with PANDAS, and she eventually tested positive for the illness again.
Hamlin’s panic attacks had worsened to the point that in May, she decided to look for help. That’s when she connected with the psychiatrist that she claimed gave her too heavy of a prescription.
In July, she began having seizures, which is when Hamlin said her health got “scary” for everyone involved. “I felt really hopeless [and] helpless, just all of the above,” she explained in the video.
A short time later, Hamlin and her family decided to send her to a treatment center in Arizona to help her with her Xanax dependency in addition to cleansing herself of the other “toxins” in her body from her various illnesses.
Hamlin was able to cut back on her Xanax use at the facility and was “so happy about it.” But after three weeks, Hamlin said she was considered a “medical risk” and “politely asked to leave.”
Hamlin later said she and her family were still “struggling to figure out kind of what to do” regarding her health. “I just wanted to share my story because I knew there are some of you out there that can maybe relate, and if not, I would actually really love some support and some recommendations, like if you’re in the L.A. area.”
Two months later, on New Year’s Day, Hamlin reflected on the challenges she faced the previous year in an emotional Instagram post, calling it a “transformative” time.
What’s Really Going On With Delilah Hamlin?
Model Delilah Belle Hamlin is getting candid about her mental health struggles. Delilah revealed on social media in November that she had accidentally overdosed on prescription drugs after she said she was overprescribed Xanax for “scary” mental and physical health struggles. “My body got dependent on Xanax number one, and number two, I overdosed,” the 20-something influencer shared, per People. “I didn’t mean to at all. I overdosed on this one medication called propranolol. I took Benadryl with it and for some reason, I ended up in the hospital.”
Delilah’s mom, “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star Lisa Rinna, took to her Instagram thanking fans for their positive feedback. “We are so grateful to you all for your help and your guidance!!” Rinna wrote, per Us Weekly. And many have commended Delilah for highlighting how beauty, fame, and fortune don’t prevent anxiety, depression, and substance use issues.
Despite seeking help, Delilah’s recent posts suggest her mental health struggles are ongoing. So, what’s really going on with the young star?
Delilah wants her parents to pay for trauma therapy
Delilah Hamlin hinted she wants to seek therapy for trauma in a new video on her TikTok account, which has recently been made private by the model. “Unrealistic things I want for Christmas… for my parents to pay for my trauma therapy,” Hamlin wrote in her video, per Page Six. The outlet reported that Delilah’s famous parents have not publicly commented on her calling them out on social media. Hamlin again suggested she was going through a tough time in a separate TikTok video. “I’m so sorry that I’ve been acting weird for the past several months. I’m struggling mentally,” Hamlin lip-synced, throwing up two peace signs.
In the past, therapy has been beneficial for Delilah, who revealed in 2019 that she went to rehab twice to treat anxiety and depression, per People. “I learned so much about being independent, feeling less shameful and guilty, I learned about self-love instead of self-deprivation and so much more,” Hamlin said of receiving in-patient treatment twice. “I worked through traumas and self-love. But most importantly I learned what self-respect meant.”
Considering the “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” is currently in production, it’s possible Delilah’s issues with her parents and mental health will get featured on Season 12.
Love Island’s Eyal Booker and his girlfriend Delilah Belle Hamlin have reportedly split after almost three years together. The pair are said to have ended things amicably just before New Year’s Eve with reports saying that Delilah was looking for a fresh start in 2022.
Hamlin stands at a height of 56 Kg (123 lbs), her body measurements (breast-waist-hips) are 31-22-33 inches (81-58-86 cm), wears shoe size 7.5 (US), and has blonde hair and green eyes.
