Selena Gomez, an American singer and songwriter, recently opened up about a life-changing moment when she discovered she had bipolar disorder.
According to Page Six, the singer of ‘Wolves’ sat down with a magazine for its September issue and shared her mental health issues as well as the relief she felt after being diagnosed with bipolar disorder.
According to Gomez, “When I learned, I felt as if a big weight had been lifted from my shoulders. I could inhale deeply and say, ‘Okay, that explains a lot.'”
The actor from ‘Wizards of Waverly Place’ continued, “There were numerous factors that should have brought me down. Each time I went through something, I thought, ‘What else is there? What more will I have to contend with?'”
Gomez was also diagnosed with lupus in 2014 and underwent a kidney transplant and chemotherapy following the diagnosis. She recounted the daily mantra she used to get through her ordeals, saying, “‘You’re going to assist people.’ [That is] basically what kept me going.”
She stated that avoiding social media helped her cope with anxiety and that in 2017, she entrusted her passwords to her assistant.
“‘I’ve got to do something [more],’ I’m thinking. After I’m gone, I want people to remember me for my heart.’ I just put down this tiny little phone with 150 million people on it. That was a tremendous relief for me “The singer elaborated.
“There was a moment when I was not strong enough and would have done anything to injure myself,” Gomez continued.
According to Page Six, the Texas native has previously spoken candidly about her struggles with anxiety and depression. She acknowledged her bipolar condition for the first time in April 2020 on Miley Cyrus’ Instagram Live show ‘Bright Minded.’
