Mariah Carey Reveals Some Very Sad News About Her Health (Keep Your Head Up, Mimi)

Carey admitted she ignored her bi-polar disorder for over a decade and only recently did she seek professional help.

“Until recently I lived in denial and isolation and in constant fear someone would expose me,” Carey continued. “It was too heavy a burden to carry and I simply couldn’t do that anymore.”

“I sought and received treatment, I put positive people around me and I got back to doing what I love — writing songs and making music,” she admitted. She admits she spent most of her career dealing with her illness in private.
