Briana, 26, disclosed her sentimental feelings regarding her three-year-old, as she reminisced about a hard time for their family.
The reality star tweeted earlier today: “I really have ptsd with Stella. Literally broke down at the dentist because they had to numb her tooth and it involved a needle.
“Brought me back to when she needed emergency surgery and so many different emotions kicked in… lol I bawled,” she revealed.
Late last month, fans showed concern when Briana posted a photo of Stella with a nebulizer covering her face.

The toddler looked in high spirits as she rested with the equipment covering her nose and mouth.
Wearing a dark blue tee shirt and light blue fluffy jacket, the child seemed relaxed despite her condition.
Briana rested her hand on her daughter’s face and captioned the photo: “My baby.”
Though the TV personality did not offer an explanation for the frightening snap, fans believed it to be due to asthma.

A nebulizer is a piece of medical equipment used to help those with asthma or respiratory conditions receive more oxygen to their lungs.
Followers of the reality star shared their concern for the small one on Reddit, one writing: “Aw hope she is okay and doesn’t have to continually take breathing treatments.
“I have asthma and had to take treatments at least 3x a day for the first 13 years of my life. So glad for advancement in medicine, changed my life.”
“Oh no poor stellita ): I hope she’s okay,” another wished while a third added: “I hope she’s okay. Looks like a typical breathing treatment which I did nightly as a kid.”

Stella has had her fair share of medical encounters in her little life, after being rushed into emergency surgery for a serious bacterial infection when she was just one.
Briana also revealed that her daughter was born with three holes in her heart, though her heart murmurs did disappear after a few hospital trips.
Some fans of the controversial mother were displeased with her intent to post Stella in the breathing device to her social media.
“I don’t understand people who want to post pictures like this online of their kids,” one complained.

“She’s definitely using this poor child for attention 🙁 It seems like she posts about Stella being sick a LOT.
“That seems incredibly messed up…. I never wish illness on anyone but I hope it’s not all being dramatized or worse for Bri’s gain,” another surmised.
Briana also caught slack recently for taking her two kids to the Universal Studios theme park during the pandemic.
Though the family wore masks on their day-trip, fans were shocked that the reality mom was not taking the epidemic more seriously.
