Alyssa Milano solicited Twitter for advice on why her anxiety had worsened and received a biting response from fellow actress Kristy Swanson.

Milano is one of the most prominent liberal activists on Twitter and a vehement critic of President Donald Trump.
Swanson, on the other hand, is unapologetically “MAGA” in political orientation and frequently voices her disdain for liberals on Twitter.
The “Who’s the Boss” star and “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” protagonist clashed on social media on Sunday.
“I had a bad panic attack last night. Any specialists out there know why my anxiety is so much worse right after my period? Which hormone is depleted?” Milano tweeted to her 3.7 million followers.
“You are premenopausal with unbearably high levels of TDS. Best of luck.”
The pro-Trump actress’ response went viral, receiving 4,000 retweets and being liked more than 20,000 times.
Trump derangement syndrome
Last year, therapists indicated a rise in what they unofficially diagnosed as “Trump Anxiety Disorder.”
In a 2017 essay, clinical psychologist Jennifer Panning – who is credited with originally coining the term – described the symptoms of “Trump Anxiety disorder” as worrying about the state of the country, feeling helpless and out of control, and spending too much time on social media.
