Schumer has been candid about her personal battles after talking about her mother, abusive relationships and the effects of her father’s multiple sclerosis and alcoholism in her 2016 book, ‘The Girl with the Lower Tattoo’.

Her latest post on mental health comes after she shared another candid moment with her followers in September, when Schumer revealed she had had her uterus and appendix removed due to poor health.
