Chrissy Teigen is a model, show host, cookbook author, Twitter goddess, and currently growing a tiny person inside of her. That last part is wreaking havoc on her body, as it does for most pregnant women, and Teigen occasionally reaches out to Twitter for advice, suggestions, and helpful hints. She did it again recently and regretted it pretty much immediately.
what are some good 2d games for my switch? I'm entering motion sickness time. I have Sonic Mania but losing rings peaks my anxiety and I can't take Xanax— christine teigen (@chrissyteigen) January 9, 2018
Teigen has been very open with her fans and followers about the struggles and obstacles in her life. Her anxiety and depression are both medically managed, but unfortunately being pregnant means that management has had to shift a little bit. Avoiding certain triggers becomes hugely important, no matter how little or silly those triggers seem to other people.
This is dumb, but there’s a game I just got into on my phone called Design Home and the goal is basically rearranging furniture. So soothing, and yet I’m invested?— Jane Marie (@SeeJaneMarie) January 9, 2018
I have been enjoying an indie title called Cat Quest. You are a cat. With a sword.— eliseable (@inviolablevoice) January 9, 2018
A lot of people swear by Stardew Valley. I liked it for a bit before getting into Mario— Dave Smith (@redletterdave) January 9, 2018

It’s just... so pure. Helped me though some major depression and anxiety in 2016. It’s a game that wants to see you be happy.

.... And that was the last time we heard from Chrissy. 😔— Chimo (@2ndHandTardis) January 9, 2018
omg say goodbye to all your free time i’m completely serious— The Grateful Deadlift (@meat) January 9, 2018
But it turns out the slow pacing at the beginning of the game and not being able to do certain tasks at certain times became one of those triggers Teigen really needs to avoid right now.
I've been told not to clear the entire farm. I have to quit then. I can't go about my dating and crop planting knowing there are weeds by the pond. I just cant. I quit— christine teigen (@chrissyteigen) January 10, 2018
I already deleted it. I can't take some of my meds pregnant and it's just stressing me out not being able to clean. I like to do things on my own time, not the weather's. I have the structure in my head. it's just a really tough situation okay guys I'm SORRY— christine teigen (@chrissyteigen) January 10, 2018
Sure, some people tried to convince her to stay, but most were supportive, and understand that pregnancy and mental health is a balancing act. Only the individual can decide what works for them and what doesn't. Congrats on that self-care, Chrissy. We're sure Stardew Valley would love to see you back if you decide to give it another go when you're feeling ready.
