Selena Gomez ‘didn’t know how to deal with bipolar disorder

Selena Gomez manages her bipolar disorder “on a daily basis.”

In her new documentary, ‘My Mind and Me,’ the 30-year-old pop star opens up about her experience living with the disorder, which causes extreme mood swings.

In a preview clip from the documentary, Selena shares: “When I first got out, I didn’t know how I’d cope with my diagnosis. What if it happened again? What if the next time, I couldn’t come back? I needed to keep learning about it. I needed to take it day by day.”

Despite this, Selena insists she is now in a better mood.

The chart-topping singer, who has been candid about her mental health issues in recent years, said: “I am happier, and I’m in control of my emotions and thoughts more than I have ever been.”

Selena recently admitted that she is “nervous” about discussing her “difficulties” in her new documentary.

The singer of ‘Lose You to Love Me’ admitted to having mixed feelings about the project.

She explained: “As nervous as I am to put out something this personal, in my heart I know now is the time.

“I hope that sharing my experiences and difficulties, will help people feel inspired to share their own stories. And to have hope that things can and will get better.”

The documentary follows Selena Gomez’s mental health journey, and she admits that the project “took on a life of its own.”

She said: “It was never this thought-out plan thinking we were going to capture these very personal parts of my life. It just evolved from there.”

To make the documentary, Selena collaborated with director Alek Keshishian.

And Selena loved working with Alek, who is best known for his Madonna documentary from 1991.

She said: “He is very kind and nurturing, and I have complete trust in him. Most of the time, I forgot he was even around. Sometimes he was just using an iPhone hiding in the corner.”
