The Full House actress, who sat at the table from 2015 to 2016, explained, "The stress and the anxiety — I actually have a pit in my stomach right now. There was only one type of stress that I've ever felt in my life, that came from that show. And I [have] PTSD, like, I can feel it. It was so difficult, and to manage that emotional stress was very, very hard."

When Bure was asked if she felt a responsibility to represent a certain group or community, the 45-year-old said she felt immense "pressure" to fully embody conservative values. "[I was] just trying to understand and have a general grasp of topics that I didn't want to talk about or didn't care about," the mother-of-three explained.

While Bure, who said she "cried everyday" while working at the chat show, she was also simultaneously working on Fuller House and had an active contract acting in Hallmark films. This type of schedule "took its toll" on the star's "emotional health." Not only that, the pressure find time to educate herself and form an opinion became intense.

"When I felt like I was going into a show that I didn't have a clear opinion about or it was something that I was legitimately nervous to talk about because I did have an opinion about it but I knew I was the only one at the table that had my opinion, I would just get sick to my stomach," Bure said.
