In a recent development, Bebe Rexha has revealed that she is suffering from bipolar disorder. In her recent tweets, that she posted last Monday, Rexha, who is 29 years of age, remarked that she has been diagnosed with bipolar disorder.
Life Had Become Difficult
According to the details Rexha shared in her posts, she had been feeling sick for quite some time now, and she had failed to understand the mysterious nature of her sickness. Whenever she was in a very low mood, she used to ground herself in her house and preferred if people would come over and be around her.
But when she would feel high on life, she would not allow herself to sleep or stop working on her music.
It had become very difficult for her to reconcile these two opposite sides of her personality until of course she was finally diagnosed with bipolar disorder, which made things much clearer to her.
She also remarked in one of her tweets that she is not ashamed of the fact that she is suffering from bipolar disorder. It is a hard reality of her life, and she has wholeheartedly accepted it.
What Does It Mean to Be Bipolar?
If someone tells you that they are suffering from a bipolar disorder, this means that they are experiencing two extreme and opposite kinds of moods with very short intervals in between their transition.
This disorder is also accompanied by other mental disorders, which obviously adds to the difficulty.
Bipolar disorder, which has previously also been called a manic form of depression, is a kind of mental illness in which a person experiences extreme and frequent mood swings, either feeling very low leading to severe depression and anxiety or too energetic which oftentimes results in difficulty when trying to fall asleep.
Such change in mood can also be characterized by a change in the thinking pattern of an individual, and also a change in behavior.
For example, when the mood of a person is elevated, it can be said that they have entered a state of mania in which an abnormal amount of energy is displayed by an individual. A person suffering from bipolar disorder can also become addicted to substance abuse, and also other kinds of anxiety disorder.
How Does It Develop?
Both genetics and environmental factors can play their role in developing this illness. Environmental factors, such as frequently experiencing long periods of stress or childhood abuse, are contributing factors for the onset of this illness.
Rexha’s next album is all about delivering an honest representation of her ongoing condition. She wants to cry her heart out to her fans and also wants to stay open.
According to Rexha, her next album could become her most favorite one because she is not hiding or running away from anything or anyone. She will keep herself open about her feelings and is also expecting her fans to accept her the way she is, without feeling sorry for her. She wants them to accept her with all of her shortcomings.
