“I'm going to be very open with everyone about this: I've been to four treatment centers. I think when I started to turn twenty that's when it started to get really dark, when I started to feel that I didn't have control of what I felt, whether it was really good or really bad”, she said for said magazine.

In this sense, Selena reported that at that time She would have episodes of mania where she felt the need to buy gifts for everyone she knew, then she would go through periods of depression and feel lonely within the entertainment industry.

With all this, for 2018, the young actress of The wizards of Waverly Place had a strong episode of psychosis that landed her in a treatment center, where after several months she was finally diagnosed with bipolar disorder.

However, Selena's path has not been easy at all, because after starting to receive medication, it did not do her any good and, when she found another psychiatrist, he told her that they had prescribed more medication than she required.

“He really guided me. But I had to essentially detox from the meds he was taking.I had to learn to remember certain words. I would forget where I was when we talked. I had a hard time (a) accepting that I was bipolar, but (b) learning to deal with it because it wasn't going to go away,” she added.

When dealing with these very personal issues in her documentary, one of Selena Gómez's crossroads was to figure out if it was appropriate to show herself in this way to the world, however, she mentioned that after the first test screening that was done, the public felt identified and she realized that releasing it publicly might be for the greater good.

“I know people who have felt those things that they don't know what to do. And I just want that to be normal (…) It makes me proud that I'm actually talking about things that matter, not sitting here just talking about my brand and 'I look great, and I have this and this.' There's enough of that already,” she sentenced.

The 30-year-old artist reflected on her life, on her autoimmune disease and also on the expectations that she had when she was younger. However, he was optimistic towards the present and stressed the importance of only accepting what is presented in life.

“I remind myself that I would not be here if it were not for the psychotic break, if it wasn't for my lupus, if it wasn't for my diagnosis. I think it would probably be another annoying entity that just wants to wear nice clothes all the time. I'm depressed thinking about who she would be. Sometimes I like to get in the car and blast that song where Adele sings 'I hope to learn to improve myself'. And I say, 'Yes, real life is happening. Real life is happening,'” she remarked.
