She said :

Recently, I went to one of the best mental hospitals in the states, McClean Hospital, and I discussed that after years of going through a lot of different things, I realized that I was bipolar, “And so when I got to know more information, it actually helps me. It doesn’t scare me once I know it.”

I think people get scared of that, right? They’re like, ‘Oh!’ And I’ve seen it, I’ve seen some of it even in my own family, where I’m like, ‘What’s going on?’ I’m from Texas, it’s just not known to talk about mental health. You got to seem cool. And then I see anger built up in children and teenagers or whatever young adults because they are wanting that so badly. I just feel like when I finally said what I was going to say, I wanted to know everything about it. And it took the fear away.”

In her concluding words, she talked about feeling depressed and having anxiety. “I felt terrified and relived,” terrified because the veil was lifted and I’m relieved that I finally had the knowledge of why I have gone through various depression and anxiety for so long.”
