Selena Gomez opens up about dealing with bipolar disorder
By Bandook - April 4, 2020
In an Instagram Live with Miley Cyrus on her virtual series Bright Minded, Selena Gomez shared among other things, that she realised that she was bipolar.
Over a 20-minute discussion, the two discussed how they were dealing with the coronavirus pandemic among other things.
One of those things was mental health. Selena said, “Recently, I went to one of the best mental health hospitals in America, McClean Hospital, and I discussed that after years of going through a lot of different things, I realised that I was bipolar. And so when I got to know more information, it actually helps me. It doesn’t scare me once I know it.”
Speaking about the diagnosis, Selena said she was terrified and relieved at the same time. “Terrified because the veil was lifted but relieved that I finally had the knowledge of why I had suffered with various depressions and anxieties for so many years. I never had full awareness or answers about this condition.”
This was the first time Selena has discussed her bipolar diagnosis.>
