Mariah Carey reveals bipolar disorder

 

 

In this week’s People magazine Mariah Carey admits that she has been battling with bipolar disorder. The star singer reveals, “Until recently I lived in denial and isolation and in constant fear someone would expose me. It was too heavy a burden to carry and I simply couldn’t do that anymore. I sought and received treatment, I put positive people around me and I got back to doing what I love- writing songs and making music.”

 

Carey was diagnosed in 2001 and continues to receive mental therapy as well as medication to manage her disorder. Carey joins other celebs Demi Lovato and Catherine Zeta Jones who have admitted to a battle with bipolar disorder. She proclaims, “It does not have to define you and I refuse to allow it to define me or control me.”
