She went on to say that while a bipolar diagnosis may shock or scare some people, she is happy to finally be able to understand why she is feeling what she is feeling. Selena explained that when she realized she was bipolar, she was “equally terrified and relieved – terrified because the veil was lifted but relieved to finally know why I had suffered from various depressions and anxieties for so many years. “
She went on to say that she “never knew or responded to the disease fully,” but is finally happy that she feels free to speak openly about her mental health now. “I’m from Texas, you just don’t know how to talk about mental health,” she told Miley. “You must look cool … I just feel like when I finally said what I was going to say, I wanted to know everything about it. And it took away the fear. “
