Shannen Doherty is struggling with her stress levels as she continues her battle against cancer.

The actress was diagnosed with stage four cancer a year ago but went public with her condition earlier this month - three years after she went into remission following a fight with breast cancer.

In a post on Instagram on Tuesday, Shannen admitted she's trying to "find my footing" in her latest health struggles.

Sharing a snap of herself riding a horse across a green field, she wrote: "I want to thank all of you for your love, prayers, and support. It's an odd time right now and I find my feet not completely underneath me.

"To say I have stress is an understatement. To say that I'm struggling is mild. But... I believe that I will find my footing. I'll dig deep for the inner strength I need to face it all. I pray I do it all with dignity and grace."

Concluding her post, the 48-year-old added: "I have so much to say. So much to share. I will. For now... please know how much you all help lift me."

She was quickly inundated with messages of support from her devoted followers, including one who wrote: "As a recent breast cancer survivor myself, I wish you every strength! I know this is hard, and you are feeling overwhelmed, but I want you to know that you are not alone... you have all of us prayer warriors out here fighting for you."

Another commented: "Sending love to you Shannen. when you are ready to share, we are ready to listen."
