Singer Selena Gomez, makes big revelations about her life in documentary, “My Mind & Me”. “Let me make you a promise, I’ll only tell you my darkest secrets”, she said at the very beginning of her new Apple TV+ documentary.
She made several intimate revelations about her mental health journey, her bipolar diagnosis including the way her mother found out she was seeking treatment in the documentary.
E News reports that “My Mind & Me” is a story of a young woman learning to accept, embrace and love herself.
In the documentary which started in 2016 when Gomez was preparing for the Revival Tour that was eventually canceled, Gomez admitted after 55 performances that “sometimes I wake up and I feel like I don’t have it in me”.
E News also noted that Gomez’s friends feared for her life at a point after the tour was cancelled. She entered a “psychiatric facility for treatment for anxiety, panic attacks and depression stemming from her 2014 lupus diagnosis”.
In the documentary, Gomez revealed that she was diagnosed with bipolar disorder while still in treatment. “I’ll be honest, I didn’t want to go to a mental hospital, but I didn’t want to be trapped in myself, in my mind anymore. I thought my life was over. I thought this is how I’m going to be forever”, she said.
Several other revelations shows that her mother did not know she sought treatment until it was revealed in 2016 through TMZ. She started “being mean” to friends and family. She was diagnosed with Lupus and had a “flare in 2020 just as the coronavirus pandemic was beginning”.
Also, she revealed that her passion is to “find a way to add a mental health curriculum into US schools”. “My ultimate dream is that I am able to save people’s lives through something, whether it’s a song, music or it’s just me speaking about the troubles, trials and tribulations I have been through”, she said.
“I could be a voice for others who maybe don’t know what’s going on or what they are feeling”, said Gomez. @selenagomez @selenagomez @Selena Gomez
