Bebe Rexha took to Twitter Monday, telling fans that she finally feels free enough to share that she suffers from bipolar disorder.
“For the longest time, I didn’t understand why I felt so sick,” she wrote. “Why I felt lows that made me not want to leave my house or be around people and why I felt highs that wouldn’t let me sleep, wouldn’t let me stop working or creating music. Now I know why.”
“I’m bipolar and I’m not ashamed anymore. That is all. (Crying my eyes out.),” the singer added.
“I don’t want you to feel sorry for me,” she added. “I just want you to accept me. That’s all. Love you.”
She also shared the post on Instagram, writing the caption “honesty is a form of self love.”
Self-care definitely seems like a priority for the singer, who just the day before, shared that she was trying not to focus on being competitive about the charts and her popularity.
“Today I’m grateful for all my fans and all the people who supported me,” she said.
