It has been a rough couple of weeks for Selena Gomez. According to TMZ, she has been hospitalized twice in the last 14 days. She had a very low white blood cell count and was taken to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in L.A.
She was eventually released, but re-admitted shortly after because the low blood count persisted. Her recent health issues took their toll both physically and emotionally. When Selena tried to leave the hospital, doctors refused and she had what witnesses called an “emotional breakdown.”
Recently, Selena told followers that she has struggled with depression for the past five years. She then announced a social media blackout, which has remained in place since September. Apparently Selena Gomez in now on the east coast in a psychiatric facility receiving behavior therapy.
Props to Selena and her team for recognizing that she needed help. Hopefully she is surrounded by people with good intentions. Never be ashamed to ask for help and get it when you need it.
