Selena Gomez opened her heart and talked like never before about her strong desire to become a mother one day, but she also revealed the reasons why that dream could be cut short.
Recalling her struggle with mental health, the singer recalled the sad moment when she finally understood that giving birth to her own offspring would be a difficult mission.
Gomez shared that after visiting a friend who was trying to get pregnant, she cried nonstop thinking that the medicines she was taking to control the bipolarity she suffers from would be decreasing her chance of having her own children, according to People.
“That’s a big, great presence in my life,” he told Rolling Stone.
According to medical studies, medications to control bipolar disorder can cause neurological and heart defects and developmental delays. In addition, pregnant women who continue to take the medications may have stronger symptoms.
The singer confessed that she remembers very little of the episode of psychosis that started in 2018 and that kept her for several months with treatment that caused paranoia and distrust of the people around her.
Fortunately, her situation improved after doctors found the right treatment and she became more aware of her condition.
Now they try to resume their usual routine, always advocating for the improvement of mental health.
