Selena Gomez Is Retiring To Deal With Panic Attacks, Anxiety, Depression, Lupus

Selena Gomez

That’s lots of thing. Selena Gomez released a statement about those things. 

“As many of you know, around a year ago I revealed that I have lupus, an illness that can affect people in different ways.  I’ve discovered that anxiety, panic attacks and depression can be side effects of lupus, which can present their own challenges,” the pop star said in a statement sent to USA TODAY. After traveling around the world for her Revival tour, “I want to be proactive and focus on maintaining my health and happiness and have decided that the best way forward is to take some time off,” she continued. “Thank you to all my fans for your support. You know how special you are to me, but I need to face this head on to ensure I am doing everything possible to be my best. I know I am not alone and by sharing this, I hope others will be encouraged to address their own issues.”

I guess this explains this. I know some people who have Lupus and post about it a lot on Facebook. How many Lupus Awareness Days are there? Seems like a lot. Pretty annoying!
