the Rare singer shared that she was diagnosed with bipolar disorder
“Recently, I went to one of the best mental hospitals in the world, but certainly in America, McLean’s Hospital. I discussed that after years of going through a lot of different things, I realized that I was bipolar. So when I go to find out more, it really helps me. It doesn’t scare me once I know it. I think people are afraid of that, ”admitted Gomez to his old friend.
How Gomez copes with his mental health issues
Gomez continued to share his personal experiences of seeing people resist getting the mental health they need. “I saw it and I saw a part of it in my own family, where I say to myself:” What’s going on? “I’m from Texas. We don’t know how to talk about your mental health. You must look cool, and then I see anger building up in teens and young adults because they want so much. I feel like, when I finally said what I was going to say, I wanted to know everything and that took away the fear, “she said of how she personally manages her bipolar diagnosis.
Gomez used the knowledge tool to help him deal with things in the past, long before he was diagnosed with bipolar disorder. She shared her old fear of the storm for Cyrus and how her mother helped her overcome her fear. Gomez went into more detail on using knowledge as a power in a recent NPR interview where she talked about her latest album, Rare.
Singer ‘Boyfriend’ remembers her fear of thunderstorms
“When I was a kid, I was terrified of thunderstorms; that would scare me. I was in Texas, so I guess thunder and lightning would mean a tornado. And so my mom, she would give me these books – and these are the little thin books that kids need to know about “What is rain?” And “What is it?” And she just said, “The more you learn and how it works, the less you will be afraid of it.” “I think it took so much work for me,” said Gomez.
It’s great that Gomez has found such an effective coping mechanism to help him deal with his bipolar diagnosis. In addition, the singer “Lose You To Love Me” has a strong support system between her family, friends and mental health professionals. In addition, her fans have showered her with love, support and good wishes since she made the announcement. We congratulate Gomez on his bravery and hope his transparency will encourage others to get the mental support they need.
