Leah Remini is opening about navigating fear, depression and anxiety on a near-daily basis since leaving the Church of Scientology in 2013.

In a new post, uploaded to on X (formerly known as Twitter) and Instagram, the 53-year-old The King of Queens star claimed the organization’s alleged attempts to ‘undermine and destabilize’ her mental and physical health ‘have had a ‘significant impact’ on her life. 

Despite describing herself as a ‘tough broad from Brooklyn,’ she admitted that it’s been ‘a constant struggle to push’ herself to ‘experience’ life without fear. 

‘I have to fight this in myself every day. The process starts all over again from the moment I wake up; I want to get out; I want to experience so many things, including the mundane, and most days, I don’t,’ the mother-of-one explained.

She went on to detail her battle with depression and getting ‘consumed by fear’ when leaving the house. 

On Monday, however, the Kevin Can Wait star said she’s being pushing herself to do ‘something unfamiliar and uncomfortable lately.’

For her this means ‘saying yes instead of no to opportunities that involve leaving’ her gated community and go back to ‘venturing into the world.’ 

‘This is a big deal for me because, in recent years, I have said ‘no’ to a lot, from invitations to go out with friends to attending events and traveling,’ she wrote. 

Remini reminded readers that she ‘escaped from Scientology in 2013’ and has been  allegedly ‘followed constantly by Scientology operatives and agents.’

‘These people hide in the shadows to monitor my movements and who I am meeting with so they can report back to Scientology’s intelligence agency, the Office of Special Affairs, which reports directly to David Miscavige,’ she claimed. 

Remini went on to accuse members of the Church of Scientology of intentionally taking ‘unflattering pictures’ of her to ‘body shame’ her. 

The Emmy winner stated that ‘their posts include salacious headlines similar to ‘Leah with no job, abandoned by Hollywood because she is a bigot…’ and ‘Leah sitting alone because she has no friends.’

She told her followers that she knows they ‘hope’ it ‘will have an impact on’ her ‘psychologically’ and influence people to stay away from her.

‘Scientology has gone from those tactics, which are bad enough, to hiring vulnerable people living with severe mental illness to harass and intimidate me,’ her statement read. ‘These people, who are being exploited by a tax-exempt organization with religious status, do not know who they are working for and why they’re doing it.’

Remini accused the group of relentlessly putting her, her loved ones and colleagues ‘in danger.’

She also accused them of breaking into her gated community.

Lately, she said her wins include visiting friends or her mother. 

‘I often post photos and videos of doing mundane things to my friends because I quietly celebrate going through with it. It’s huge! Given my depression and very warranted fears of being hunted, as well as my concerns for my friends’ safety, it’s a big thing to overcome,’ she said. 

As for why she decided to share her struggles, Remini said she ‘wanted to share what I’ve been going through’ to ensure others battling ‘depression, anxiety, or any other reason’ that she understands the pain. 

‘On top of my struggles with depression, my body has seemed to change overnight, something women my age (53) go through naturally, but I know it still comes as a shock to so many of us,’ the star added. 

Despite leaving the organization a decade ago, Remini said it's been 'a constant struggle to push' herself to 'experience' life without fear, and describes visits with her mom as a 'win'

Remini also noted that ‘out of nowhere’ she began breaking out into hives due to an unknown allergic reaction that she has to carry an EpiPen everywhere she goes for, in case it flares back up. 

Additionally, she shared that she is going through perimenopause, which is the transitional period before menopause.

Symptoms include trouble sleeping, night sweats, headaches, trouble concentrating, mood changes hot flashes and more, according to Johns Hopkins Medicine

‘I wrote this because I often feel very alone in experiencing it, and in writing about this and sharing it publicly, I hope to feel less isolated and hope that I can make some of you feel the same,’ she concluded.
