Selena Gomez On Emotional Break During Lupus Diagnosis

Selena Gomez has reportedly checked into a facility in Tennessee to deal with her emotional issues, according to E!.

Due to her Lupus diagnosis, she announced that she was going to take a break from the spotlight in August, but this apparently is more than just Lupus this time.

Us Weekly quotes that"...this break is to focus on her mental health. She can go to a very dark place."

She was having anxiety, panic attacks, and depression that caused her to cancel multiple dates on her tour.

During this, Selena has also taken a break from social media, with her last post from her tour being 8 weeks ago.

E! quotes a statement from her, saying that "I know I am not alone by sharing this... I hope others will be encouraged to address their own issues."


It seems as if the generation preceding and Gomez's generation are having more influxes of anxiety, panic disorders, and depression, so hopefully Selena coming forward will help to inspire other to work through  it, rather than seek other drastic options.
