Below Deck Sailing Yacht’s Daisy Kelliher gets real about separation anxiety

In a heartfelt Instagram message, Daisy got real about her separation anxiety and her desire to highlight the positive things in her life rather than the negative.

“So this is my sad face- the great thing about social media is all the positivity and fun it brings, but we all know it isn’t real. I don’t really like to bring up negative things on my social media but I think the odd gentle reminder that my life isn’t as fabulous as it may seem is a good idea. Grass is always greener on the other side,” Daisy wrote alongside a picture of her with no make-up.

The chief stew was clearly upset in the photo as she revealed that her life was by no means perfect. Daisy touched on all the things she missed out on because of her yachtie lifestyle.

“Always sleeping in a different bed. Multiple flights all the time, and coming to terms with the fact that I suffer from sever separation anxiety and every time I have to leave a loved one whether it be family or friend is physically painful for me which atm I seem to be doing weekly. I just don’t want anyone to be envious of what they see on social media and hope we can all find contentment in the lives we lead,” she expressed.

Below Deck family responds to Daisy’s vulnerability

It didn’t take long for Daisy’s post to become flooded with responses from fans and some members of the Below Deck family.

Below Deck Sailing Yacht stars Captain Glenn Shephard, Kelsie Goglia, Alli Dore, and Tom Pearson showed their love for Daisy. Below Deck Med alum Katie Floody and Below Deck alum Heather Chase also replied with support and understanding.
