Speaking to Lorraine, the 26-year-old admitted, ‘I felt like a really bad person for feeling that way.’

She continued, ‘I’m such a positive person, so it was strange to feel that way.’

The TV personality also wanted other people to know that, if they’re going through the same experience, you’re still ‘normal.’

She explained, ‘…you just have to realise that you’re normal, you’re okay and you can get through it.’

We know it’s probably a difficult subject to put into words, so we commend her for speaking out.

Stacey continued, ‘You feel selfish, but others have it worse. I thought there was something wrong with me. But there’s so much going on with your body, but the first step is accepting it.’
