Celebrities You Didn’t Know Are Battling Medical Conditions
Singer Mariah Carey has sold hundreds of millions of albums around the world and has had 18 top-of-the-chart hits. Chances are you know of at least one of her songs, even if it’s just her cover of “All I Want For Christmas is You.” But what many people don’t know is that the famous singer struggles with bipolar II disorder, which she was (quietly) diagnosed with in 2001. For Carey, life is defined by periods of depression and hypomania; she long thought she suffered from a sleep disorder, but the reality has been harder to swallow. Still, Carey is doing her best to take care of herself, finding the right medication to maintain balance and surrounding herself with people that will support her in living her best life.
