Her, mother Yolanda Hadid said at the Global Lyme Alliance gala event in 2016;
“Sometimes the severe symptoms can sometimes, bring you to your knees.”
At the same time, she also said;
“There are rough days when you sleep 12 hours, you wake up at 11 and you can’t get out of bed, with severe joint pain, brain fog, anxiety. There are a lot of symptoms that you can’t see from the outside but bring you to your knees on the inside,”

“Life isn’t always what it looks like on the outside, and the hardest part of this
journey is to be judged by the way you look instead of the way you feel.”

“Growing up, having three of my family members sick made me very independent,” she told Elle in February 2019. “My mom couldn’t drive or get out of bed some days, so I took my brother to school with me, or I made lunch.”
Also, in the magazine “People”, she shared something about her fashion week;
“When I’m at fashion week it literally only work, and when I’m not working, I’m sleeping – especially during fashion week. I don’t go out that much, I eat dinner by myself in my hotel room and go to sleep. That’s pretty much my fashion week.”
