Getting Diagnosed With Bipolar Disorder Was a Relief For Her
While chatting with Miley Cyrus in April 2020 on Miley's Bright Minded IG live stream, Selena revealed that receiving an official diagnosis of bipolar disorder allowed her to better understand herself. "When I have more information, it actually helps me. It doesn't scare me once I know it," she explained. " . . . 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.' It completely worked. That's something that helps me big time."
