Mariah Carey Reveals That She Has Been Battling With Bipolar Disorder.

Mariah Carey opened up to
PEOPLE about her health and battle with bipolar II disorder.

She was first diagnosed in 2001, but she’s apparently been dealing with this all these 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.”

Mariah is reportedly currently in therapy, and she’s said to be taking medication for bipolar II disorder which involves “periods of depression and hypomania.”

More details about Mariah’s battle with bipolar II disorder will be available in PEOPLE magazine this Friday!
