Selena Gomez opens up on her depression and anxiety

The 26-year-old pop singer recently entered a treatment facility to help control her ongoing anxiety and depression related issues.

It's stated that Selena suffered an "emotional breakdown" following two hospitalizations within the last few weeks related to her Lupus and last year's kidney transplant.

According to TMZ, Gomez received medical attention at Cedars-Sinai in Los Angeles after her white blood cell count became increasingly low.

A reduction in the number of white blood cells is called leukopenia, and is sometimes common for those with active Lupus.

Earlier this year, Gomez completed a two-week treatment program in New York City for anxiety and depression. She is currently reportedly receiving treatment, including dialectical behavior therapy, at the same psychiatric facility.

Late last month, Selena spoke openly with her Million Instagram followers about her mental health journey during an Instagram Live. The "Come and Get It" performer described depression as "her life" for "five years straight,"


"Every time I try to do something right, every time I try to do something good I felt like people were picking me apart."
Soon after, she announced her decision to take yet another break from social media to "step back" and focus on the "present."On an interview with Harper's Bazaar, she revealed that her anxiety and depression are not things she thinks she'll "ever overcome."
Explained the celeb,
"There won't be a day when I'm like, 'Here I am in a pretty dress—I won!' I think it's a battle I'm gonna have to face for the rest of my life, and I'm OK with that because I know that I'm choosing myself over anything else."

This is not the first time the pop star has sought professional treatment for her emotional well-being.

Wishing Selena all the best as she continues to heal!
