“One of the reasons I’m posting this message so late is because I push myself and important things slip away. And one of the reasons I’m pushing myself is my lifelong buddy, anxiety. I know that I’m not alone and, more importantly, to all those like me who take too much time, think too much, overwork, worry and most of all know that you are not alone ”, reads- one in the message. “We don’t talk enough about mental health and don’t do enough to de-stigmatize to talk about it. But, like this post, better late than never I hope … “
This isn’t the first time Reynolds, 44, has spoken of his anxiety. After filming the first dead Pool movie, Reynolds was diagnosed with anxiety.
“I have anxiety, I’ve always had anxiety,” Reynolds said of his diagnosis. spectrum, which is no fun. ”

“I struggle. I’m anxious about certain things and the press, things like that. I asked every human in my life what they thought, and they said I should make the movie, then I went to therapy. I thought, ‘I’m going to talk to my therapist! See what they have to say!’ ”
