Mariah Carey decided to share something with the world.
The singer revealed to PEOPLE, that she was diagnosed with bipolar since 2001. That was the time she was hospitalized after a mental breakdown.
She recently got treatment for the disorder after the past couple of years.
“Until recently I lived in denial and isolation and in constant fear someone would expose me,” she says. “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.”
According to the report, she is currently in therapy and taking medication for the disorder.
