The pandemic had an effect on both Jodie Sweetin's mentality and her waistline.
While on the "Allison Interviews" podcast, the "Fuller House" alum said she was "a mess" for months, but rather than eating her feelings, she went the opposite way.
"I was not a fully functioning person," the actress said. "I lost like 37 pounds during [quarantine], because I'm a stress starver, and not in a good way. I just stopped eating. I couldn't keep food down."
The pandemic and the lockdown made her feel "out of control," she said.
"I have severe anxiety and depression anyway, so it really didn't do any favors for my mental health," she explained. "I really struggled with it, and for me it was a time of feeling really out of control."
Jodie's struggles with mental health have been well documented, as have her past issues with drug and alcohol abuse. She's now been sober 15 years.
Speaking about the pandemic, the mother-of-two noted that she was lucky to avoid contracting the virus during its height. Her family was also able to steer clear.
"I can only imagine, as semi-smooth sailing it was for us, what other people went through. I think that collective trauma and pain has really affected us, and is really going to affect everyone's mental health in ways that we haven't seen yet," she said. "I can't imagine how it affected people who were working on the front lines."
"People who were nurses, people who were losing family members to COVID. I fell apart and I was managing to do okay," she continued, "but I was terrified for my kids and the world and all of it."
