Los Angeles, Feb 23 (IANS) Actress Gina Rodriguez suffered from "debilitating" anxiety and panic attacks after taking too much medication for her ongoing struggle with Hashimoto's disease.She was able to lower her dosage of Hashimoto's disease medication, and no longer battles the mental health conditions, reports femalefirst.co.uk."To the core of my being, I know what it's like to feel like there is no way I can win this, so where do I even begin. (Hashimoto's) affects so many aspects of your life. I've had it for so many years ... that rebellion of not taking care of myself can't exist anymore," she told Self magazine.She added: "It is really important for us to be super self-aware. I wasn't banking on that. I wasn't like, 'Hey, yeah, let me get a disease that makes me have to be super aware'. I don't want to be super aware of myself all of the time."The "Jane the Virgin" star credits her beau Joe LoCicero with helping her manage her illness, which can also result in fluctuating weight for the star, meaning she has to watch her diet closely."(Mine and Joe's relationship is one of) respect and kindness, and generosity, and compromise, and sacrifice. (He) has really helped me have a healthier perspective on (weight), that stupid number that can destroy us and feel like it's equivalent to our self-worth. This love is so easy," she said.--IANSdc/nn/
