Mariah Carey battles bipolar disorder, no longer in denial

Mariah Carey battles bipolar disorder, no longer in denial

Mariah revealed her 17-year-long battle with the disorder earlier this week, where she admitted she was living in "denial and isolation" before speaking publicly about her struggle.

On Wednesday, Mariah went public with her diagnosis in a People magazine article, revealing she first learned she had the disorder in 2001, when she was hospitalized after suffering a physical and emotional breakdown, but she refused to believe it.

The "We Belong Together" hitmaker now undergoes therapy and is on medication for the illness, and has said that 17 years on from her diagnoses, she is now ready to speak out in the hopes that other suffers can realise they're not alone.

"I'm grateful to be sharing this part of my journey with you", she wrote in the tweet. Until recently, I lived in denial and isolation and in constant fear someone would expose me.

Carey says, "I got back to doing what I love - writing songs and making music". But it wasn't normal insomnia and I wasn't lying awake counting sheep.

Miss "Songbird Supreme" is now working on a new album with Roc Nation, which will be the first since her 2014 album, Me. I was irritable and in constant fear of letting people down. It turns out that I was experiencing a form of mania.

Another significant person that reportedly had nothing but positive thoughts about Carey's condition is her former husband, singer and actor Nick Cannon.

The singer said she was "in a good place" and was busy working on a new album‚ due for release later this year.

"It can be incredibly isolating", she said.

She said she is taking medication that "is not making me feel too exhausted or sluggish" and is working on a new album due out later this year.
