Early detection of bipolar depression can be clinically challenging as major depression is the commonest first clinical presentation for both unipolar and bipolar disorders.
Selena has openly talked about her anxiety and depression in the past but hasn’t before revealed that she suffers from bipolar disorder.
Speaking to Miley Cyrus on her Bright Minded Livestream on Friday, the 27-year-old singer revealed she was recently diagnosed with bipolar disorder.
In her words:
“Recently, I went to one of the best mental hospitals in… America, McClean Hospital, and I discussed that after years of going through a lot of different things, I realized that I was bipolar. When I have more information, it actually helps me, it doesn’t scare me once I know it. When I was younger, I was scared of thunderstorms and my mom bought me all these books on thunderstorms and she was like, “The more you educate yourself on this, the more that you’re not going to be afraid.”
