Carson Daly Opens Up About Struggles with Anxiety: 'You Feel Like You're Dying'

Carson Daly is getting real about his struggle with a severe anxiety disorder, where he suffers panic attacks every day.

During a recent interview on TODAY, the 44-year-old The Voice host opened up about being nervous all his life.

“Looking back on my life, I was a worrywart kid. I was always worrying,” Carson shared. “My father died when I was 5. I had an ulcer when I was in high school. I’ve been nervous my whole life. My very first panic attack happened — and, by the way, I had no idea what it was at the time — when I was a host at MTV. The success of my career, I flew to New York, and my life changed overnight. I had a hard time breathing. I was terrified for no apparent reason.”

Carson went on to share that his panic attacks had become so debilitating that he was once hospitalized.

“You feel like you’re dying” Carson said. “In fact, I went to the hospital. I’ve got leads on my chest, and 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.”

Carson now sees cognitive therapist who provides him with “tools to work through it” and has come to terms with living with anxiety.
