She revealed that her smile masked deeper feelings and aches, saying: "Tuesday truth. Today I will remind you not to believe all the happy images you see on social media."
Deborah continued: "This smile is masking a headache and dizziness and nausea. A migraine and vertigo has seized me for the last few days. I get them occasionally but this is a rough bout.
"Don't know if you suffer but it’s exhausting. Not sure if it's a long term result of Covid or the pollen or stress. Or none of the above."

The journalist shared her message of positivity with fans
She continued: "I was just beginning to make a decision to choose hope over despair. Hard days were ahead but like many of you, occasionally I found reason to smile. This was meant to be my stark reminder to always look for light. #tbt."
